True stories (whoa)
Miracles (whoa)
True blessings (whoa)
All because I love
True stories (whoa)
Miracles (whoa)
True blessings (whoa)

I was riding in my car one day
In the express lane
Rolling on the freeway
And suddenly the phone rings
And then I reached down beside me
Then I looked on the floor
Felt on the backseat
See I was drinking (whoa)
While I was driving (whoa)
Never thinking (whoa)
About what I was doing (whoa)
I turned around (whoa)
And before I knew it (whoa)
Here comes this truck now (whoa)
The doctor said "I don't think he's going to 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 unto me
If you promise to stop drinking
I surrendered on that day
Now for ten years I been straight

You saved me
You saved me
You saved me
You saved me
Gave me a second chance
You saved me
You saved me
You saved me
You saved me

Now I been sitting in this chair
Waiting on the phone to ring
Praying up to God
That someone would 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 stopped believing in his word
And got so mad at him
And when somebody said God's good
I just laugh at him
And in the nick of time his blessings rained on me
By his grace the phone rings
A lady says "We're hiring"
That's when I knew...

Chorus (1x)

Now I was 18 out there
On the block sending drugs
With a gun at my waist
And for people I had no love
See the streets was my home
And family and friends were gone
Had no one to trust
And deep inside I was all alone
And then a deal went bad one day
And it was enough to pause me
I was shot four times
And before I knew it
I was on my knees
Blood rushing down my body
My hearts beating fast
I don't know what imam do
I don't think I'm going to last
Then I begin to flashback
On the things I done in my past
Then I heard a small voice the said to me
"I'll give you peace if you believe"
I accepted Christ that day
Halleluiah! Now I'm free!

Chorus (1x)

I was in the aisle of a 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 you got cancer"
I could not believe it So I called up my mama to calm my nerves
(mama) She got down on her knees
(mama) She said a prayer for me
(mama) She said just keep on thanking Jesus
(mama) She'll give you all you need (Thank you Jesus)
But that was Five years ago (Thank you Jesus)
I don't have that pain no more (Thank you Jesus)
Doc said "you can go home" (Thank you Jesus)
Cause all your cancer's gone

Chorus (1x)

When I was goin left
You stirred me right
Its all the way down
You lift me up all night
And though you saw my faults
You forgave me for my sins
I would call on you and you would let me in
I had nothing to loose
So I tried you
Now I'm glad I did
You are the truth

Chorus till fade
