You wonder why he loves you

January 24, 2010

You wonder why he loves you when you see
the dirty rags of filth you’re covered in
Not only that, the skin of leprosy
and heart so blackened by the countless sins.

You wonder why he loves you when you set
your foot into his holy dwelling place,
its beauty second to the One it kept,
Your self you feel to Him should be a waste

But quick-eyed Love, who sees my blackened state
unravels all my robes so filthy, wet
instead He covers me with sovereign grace
declaring in His sight my righteousness.

How then could I persist, continue in
the same old thoughts and acts of this disease?
Behold the Man who gave it all to win
this soul of mine for all eternity!

Oh Creature! Loved by God and newly made!
to Him give all thy heart, his word obey!
