My old perspective:

I opened my eyes, filled with grief,

And raised my voice to join the chorus.

For the angels, by the throne of God,

Were mourning the birth of another useless life

And wailed in sorrow upon my deliverance.

For a sinful being was I, destined to grieve the Father

And fail, disappoint, all mankind.

My new perspective:

I opened my eyes in glee

Upon receiving my deliverance,

For I have been redeemed

By the precious blood of Jesus.

No longer will I mourn,

But rather join the angels’ chorus

Of everlasting praise.
