	I found the Lord! - Praise the Lord! - He turned me from my sins! -
Praise Him! - Killing, robbing.  Worse... - Praise His Name! - And I was healed 
- Yes! - And when my parole board saw, they saw that I was changed! -Praise 
Jesus! - they saw the Light of his Grace shining on me - Shining BRIGHT, 
Lord! - they released me.  Praise God in his Heaven, they put me back out on the 
	And in the street, I did NOT return to my former ways.  I walked in His 
path and I spoke of His Word and I worked where He willed I work - hauling 
garbage, cleansing the sick, preparing the dead - I carried the cross He put on 
my shoulder and I bent beneath the weight of its Joy.
	And when I saw a child - a little child! - I tried to embrace Him, to hold 
Him to me - to hold His Holiness! - I tried to bind his Innocence tome. I cried 
for His Grace, but He would not come. He ran from my heart's cry, from the 
sanctified craving of my blood, and so I held Him - Yes! - andI squeezed Him - 
Yes! - and I would not release Him - no! - in my hunger andmy aching, I held 
Him and I hushed Him, and I prayed that He would hear me, still as He was, I 
prayed until they came.
