I Can Go On
You ask me if I feel the pain
From a sin of long ago;
The answer’s “Yes, I feel the pain
And tears sometimes still flow.”
My sin was that I took a life
Innocent, unborn, my child’s,
For years I carried guilt and grief
That I had been beguiled ¾
That I had cared for self so much
My baby had to die;
And day and night I tossed and turned
Wishing it had been I.
Then I met Someone who could pay
A debt I never could
His name is Jesus, Son of God ¾
Pure, sinless, holy, good.
He paid my debt and set me free
Despair no more is mine,
For Jesus holds me tight with arms
That ease my pain with time.
I can go on with Jesus at my side,
I can go on my sin no more to hide;
I can go on to live in victory ¾
Because one day my Savior
set me free.
