So GREAT...Is My Unworthiness
So GREAT is my unworthiness,
My mind can NEVER see
The magnitude of grace and love
The Master's shown for me.
If I could write...as eagles fly
With majesty and grace,
I'd not discover....even part
Of WHY He took MY place.
Unworthy of this blessed walk
That covers many years,
Recalling how my foolish ways
Gave birth to countless tears.
The trusts that I have squandered
For a fleeting glimpse of...'more'...
While jeopardizing treasures....
Caring not, what lay in store.
My guilt is greater far...than I
Can manage...without You,
I started out to go YOUR way
But I have proved untrue.
Too easily...I fell away,
And compromised my goal,
To be the man YOU'D HELP me be
(MY path...has reaped its toll.)
In sleepless nights and wretched days
When ALL would crumble in,
Reminding me of where I was....
And where I COULD have been.
Now...as the prodigal, of old
I seek the Father's care,
The home I left...to go MY way
Indeed....is waiting there!
I ask that ALL forgive me
For a life so loosely spent,
And to my blest Redeemer
I so humbly, now, repent.
I pray for strength and courage
And a mending of my ways,
That I may fill the time I have
With messages of praise.
So...Father, be Thou with me
As I set a course to sail,
With YOU...I'll make it all the way...
Without You...I will fail.
Just give Your sweet assurance
That my prayer has reahced Your Place,
And hold my trembling soul...to Thee
Until I see Your face.
