This poem was written by Elder Dustin Nygard of Rigby, Idaho, and shared in Fast and Testimony Meeting on 26 April 2009, two days before he was transferred from Mount Sterling, Kentucky.
I'm grateful for what my Savior did for me,
To die upon the cross of Calvary,
I know again I'll see His face,
Pleading for His loving grace,
I know it's sure, it's held me fast,
Through all my life's trials and tempests.
My mind weighed down by sins at time,
Yet lifted up but I in pride,
Refused to leave my past behind,
He said to me come follow me,
And doing so you shall be free.
I placed my trust in God once more,
My struggles hard yet I endured,
The sunlight streamed it filled its part,
And peace bound up my broken heart.
When upon life's billows tossed,
God is there, you are not lost,
He hears your prayer, your every plea,
And all because of Calvary.
