Since I Met Him

Now it's hard to describe what my life used to be
To someone who's always been able to see
You know I wasn't unhappy or bitter that way
But everything's changed since I met Him that day

I was down by the corner just passin' the time
Sitting in sunlight and feelin' it shine
When the sounds of a crowd began to grow in my ear
So I waited and listened as I heard them draw near

Then a man stepped up to me and spat on the ground
He put the mud on my eyes and then smeared it around
Sent me off to Siloam to wash off the clay
And I opened my eyes and I looked at the day

And I have no idea how He did it
I just know what happened to me
Yesterday I was in darkness
But since I met Him I can see

When the Pharisees heard it they put me on trial
Even called in my parents and grilled them awhile
But when at the end, I defended the man
Who had opened my eyes, all the trouble began

'Cause I said, "Ever since the beginning of time
No one's opened the eyes of someone born blind
This man's sent from God, it just can't be denied!"
And they cursed me and grabbed me, and threw me outside

I really don't know how he found me
But I know Who was talking to me
It was easy to tell by the sound of His voice
That He was the reason I see

And as soon as He spoke to me I couldn't hide
The emotions that welled up from deep down inside
And combined with the dreams that He'd made to come true
To kneel there and worship was all I could do

And I called Him my Lord and Savior
For everything He'd done for me
Yesterday I was in darkness
But since I met Him I can see

And I call Him my Lord and my Messiah
For everything He's done for me
Yesterday I was in darkness
But since I met Him,

since I met Him
Since I met Him I can see!
Since I met Him, since I met Him
Since I met Him I can see!
