Gone

They are gone
Gone at last
All the demons
Of the past

All my pain
And brokenness
All that made
My life a mess

Gone when love
Looked down at me
Gone when love
Dared set me free

Calloused hands
Reached out to me
Eyes that saw
What I could be

Seven demons
He cast out
Showed me grace
I could not doubt

In their place
He breathed in me
Brand new life
That I could see

He knew it all
That day He came
Into town
And called my name

Yet still he smiled
At me in love
Showed me the face
Of God above
