Not Even You

You think you are worthy of heaven
‘I’m not so bad’; so you say
‘I’m am nice, I am friendly to people
I listen to God, I obey’
I follow the great Ten Commandments
I avoid lust and greed when I can
But beyond that, what can you expect Lord?
After all, I am only a man.
My sinful past says I’m unworthy
I should be dammed and go straight to hell
Come to think of it, you’re not so good either
You have your own bad secrets to tell
Not even you are worthy of heaven
Not even you are worthy of grace
You don’t even deserve God’s acceptance
You reservations in hell, not heavens’ place
But God sees things very different
He takes all your failings as His own
And that perspective is called His redemption
It comes when to Christ you are known
Not even you deserve God’s damnation
If you accept Christ as Savior and Lord
Not even you can do enough good things
No, you can never God’s goodness afford
Not even you are clean, no not close
Not even you can God’s demands meet
So God decided He’d meet them Himself
All you must do is let Christ wash your feet
No, not even you are above God dying for you
No, not even you are below His expectations
For He remembers your frame is but dust
And so He offers you Christ as Salvation

Psalm 53:3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Ps 103:14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

John 13:8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me

Romans 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
