With A Sober Mind

With A Sober Mind (1 Peter 1:13)

I took a drink to find slumber
Until the effect no longer held
To drain the bottles a way of life
Once the only way to fall asleep
Then a mind confused by life
A mind lost in the chaos of living
A darkened heart upon the edge
A drunken life close to the end

Then grace opened the door bringing forth light
Shadows of the mind diminished
A clarity flooded down to this heart
A will to end was lifted with a whisper
A drunken life that day found it’s end
Now a living praising grace I live
With Christ I walk in mercy’s glory
With a sober mind to live each day

1 Peter 1:13
