It’s Never Too Late

It's Never Too Late by Jen Loch

I've been the children's primary pianist in my LDS wards for many years, and one day it occured to me that there aren't many songs about repentance in the children's hymnbook. So I decided to write one. This song is meant to be for kids and teens, but it can work for any age. I recorded it at home so it's not a professional recording, but I wanted you to be able to hear it. Hope you like it! -Jen

Here are the Lyrics:

Verse 1

If I ever do something I know is wrong
I might want to run from the Lord
And the guilt that I feel
When I've disobeyed His word
But that's when I need His help the most-
I'll cry to Him in prayer
I'll make the choice to repent
And do my best to make repair
Because I know He loves me
And He wants me on His side.
It's never too late
To do what's right.

Verse 2

No matter how big or how small it is
I can be forgiven
If I give them to Him
He will take away my sins
And He will also take away
The sorrow that I feel
Replacing it with peace and hope
As only He can heal.
The world can be a dark place
And the only light is Christ.
It's never too late
To do what's right.

What a wonderful song!  It is true that it is never too late to repent.  Thank you for sharing this song.

I'm really impressed by this.  Have you thought about selling the rights, to get it included in the next children's songbook?

Thanks Mary! Yes I submitted it to the church but I don’t think they liked it enough to include it in any songbooks.
