I didn’t know

When I was one with God
Before my birth,
I didn’t know
That I would come to earth.

And when I came to earth,
A little child,
I didn’t realise
I had been exiled.

When I was exiled here
To seek and yearn,
I never guessed
How much I’d have to learn.

And when I learned
How hard this life can be,
I didn’t think
Salvation would be free.

When I found new hope
Through Jesus Christ,
I didn’t grasp
What he had sacrificed.

And when I understood
His gift of love,
I never thought
That I would drink his blood.

When I drank his blood
He made me whole.
At last, I knew my origin
And goal.

So I pursue that goal
With all my might –
To reunite with God,
Who shares our plight.
