Lyrics

I was riding in my car one day In the express lane rollin' on the freeway And suddenly the phone rings then I Reached down beside me then I look On the floor felt on the backseat See I was drinking while I was driving Never thinking 'bout what I was doing I turned around and before I knew it Here comes this truck now Doctor said don't think he gonna make it Family said make the funeral arrangements Unplug the machine he's gone now Then told my wife to be strong now Then a small voice said told me If you promise to stop drinking I surrendered on that day Now for ten years I've been straight You saved me [4x] Gave me a second chance You saved me [3x] You saved me

Now I've been sitting in this chair Waiting on the phone to ring Praying up to God that someone will call Me with a job opening 'Cause it's been so hard for me Month to month struggling to eat But still there was no answer I stop believing in his word and Got so mad at him and When somebody said God's good I just laugh at 'em But in the nick of time his blessing Rain on me By his grace the phone ring A lady said we're hiring and That's when I knew You saved me [4x] Now I was 18 out there on the block Selling drugs With a gun at my waist And for people I had no love See the streets was my home Family and friends we're all gone Had no one to trust And deep inside I was all alone And a deal went bad one day And it was enough to pause me I was shot 4 times and before I Knew it I was on my knees Blood pushin' out my body My heart's beating faster don't know what I'm gonna do I don't think I'm gonna last then I begain to flash back on the things I done in my past Then I heard a small voice that said I'll give you peace if you believe I accepted Christ that day Hallelujah now I'm free You saved me [4x] I was in the aisle of the grocery store With a pain in my chest and I'm wondering Where did it come from (I got tested) And the results came back And the doctor said I'm sorry but u got cancer I could not believe it so I call my mama to calm my nerves (Mama) she got down on her knees (Mama) she said a prayer for me (Mama) just keep on thanking Jesus (Mama) he'll give you what you need (Thank you Jesus) Now that was five years ago I don't have that pain no more Doc said you can go home 'Cause all that cancer's gone You saved me [4x] You saved me (said you saved me) You saved me (but you saved me) You saved me saved me Gave me a second chance (second chance) Hallelujah saved me Saved me saved me Wooooooh You saved me You gave me it was by grace You saved me I'm so thankful that You looked down on me Saw me standing there I was at the end of my rope no where to go And you gave me No where to go (and you saved me) I was down and out 2 I was doing drugs 2 I was running the streets 2 Never felt love I was wilding out You saved me You stepped in ooh save me You saved me
