Oh my God, my holy Father
What am I that I have deserved your infinite love?
I am a failure, I feel unworthy of your favour upon me
In the midst of my miserable attempts of goodliness, I feel so unholy
I am but a speck among millions, why should you love me so?

Oh my child, my dear precious little one,
You could do nothing to deserve my unlimited love
I have loved you with an everlasting love
It is by my grace that you are saved
You are my child, I created you in my image
Therefore I love you more than all other creation
I sacrificed my own Son for you, to show you my love for you.

Oh my God, my loving Father,
Why should you think to rescue me, a sinner of this world?
Surely, all you must see in me is unrighteousness, as filthy rags.
Surely I am but a pitiful beggar, a sinner with nothing at all to offer you
Why is it that you chose to save me from hell, which I so much deserve?

Oh my child, my dear, precious child,
I say again, I created you, therefore I love you
In faith you pleaded forgiveness of your sins
I no longer hold record of your past wrong
Your sins are washed from my memory by Jesusí blood
I see not a filthy rag, but a born again, new creation
You are holy, acceptable, and pleasing to Me, my child.

Oh God, my forgiving Father
What have I done that you should hold me so secure in your hands?
I continue to fall back into old sins, why do you still keep me?
Why is it that you do not give me up, for cause of my continuous failings?
What am I, surely I do not have a future worth your trouble for me!

Oh my child, my dear, precious child,
You might never understand, but again, I love you beyond your imagination
I knew you before you were conceived in your motherís womb
I have a future planned for you, to prosper you, not to harm you
You will do many great and mighty things in my Son Jesusí name
I have given you exceedingly great power and authority
You are my child, and I am God, in my eyes, you are worth my while.


Who am I that you should pour out such blessings upon me?
I am humbled at your outpouring, I feel so undeserving
May my heart ever bow to You in adoration,
May my life be as a living sacrifice to you

May all I ever do bring honor and glory and power to Your name
I live at your service, I will heed Your voice
Teach me Your will oh God, train my hands for war
Show me your ways, that I may live to please You

At the touch of my fingers, Your anointing shall be poured forth
At the sound of my cry, hell will tremble,
At my feet shall enemies fall
At my hands shall captives be released

For the Lord is with me
I have been empowered and anointed
Greater is He that is in me than he that is in this world
I am a child of God, the Almighty.

AMEN and AMEN! Thank you my Father!
