BEFORE I COULD SAY "MAMA"

Through the actions of one man (Adam) I became a sinner.

I became a sinner even before I could say “Mama,” even before I was born.

The sentence for his sin was death, eternal separation from God.

So I died before I could say “Mama,” even before I was born.

Through the actions of God, 

A way for escape from death was made for me,

Before I could say, “Mama,” even before I was born.

So redemption was made available to me before I could say, “Mama,” even before I was born.

Now that I can say more than “Mama,”

Now that I understand the verdict and the sentence,

I have accepted the way of escape from death.

That guilty verdict no longer hangs over me; 

It no longer has a hold on me.

The way of escape is through faith in Jesus, the Son of God

I have faith in Him for the sacrifice He made,

Before I could say, “Mama,” even before I was born.

Now I am as free as if I’ve never sinned!

Now I am free to live for God, not for self and not for sin!   

How about you?
