My Own Forty-Two, A Testimony

 

Hello, my name is Peter Rhebergen

and I'm here today by grace of God alone

the One Who began to knit me together

before my parents even knew of me

 

this is the day that the Lord has made

I will rejoice and be glad in it

 

Hello, my name is Peter Rhebergen

who loving Him knew also how to love me

I will rejoice and be glad in it

from the pit he himself has made

I will rejoice and be glad in it

 

Hello, my name is Peter Rhebergen

and I'm here today by grace of God alone

the One Who always cares for me

through every trial and joy of life

Hello, my name is Peter Rhebergen

and I'm here today by grace of God alone

the One Who's Son has paid my price

and lets me call His Father "Mine!"
