You Sinned/My Gift

You sinned so very greatly
I had to turn my face
I could not call you mine
You were truly a disgrace

You asked for my forgiveness
Yet you had no gift to give
So let me put it plainly
I should not have let you live

But then I did consider
That I left you free to choose
And could I ever blame you
If your freedom you abused

So I decided I would offer
A gift from you from me myself
After all the gifts you’d give me
Come right off of my own shelf

Nothing is really worthy
Nothing really will suffice
So I had to be the gift
I had to come as Christ

I was My own apology
I only give the best
And if you want forgiveness
You’ll come to Me and rest

Accept my own apology
The one I give to Me
Just say I thank you Lord
And then my child, you’re free

Ro 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh

Ro 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Jas 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Ro 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
