I am not worthy of the love of Jesus Christ, for I am drenched in the stench of sin.
Clothed in the rags of unworthiness, unfit to receive the love that Jesus has for me, unworthy am I indeed.
In this dark and dreary world sin abounds, it blinds me, it clouds my mind and keeps me from fulfilling Jesus' will.
Happy and content I may seem, but within I deny Jesus and find it hard to let go of my sinful ways.
I remember the days when I was young and attended Sunday School, my teacher taught me the ways of Jesus, and yet I turned my back and am now lost in the trappings of sin.
Suffering from my own destructive ways brought me to my knees, through prayer I took up my cross and started down the road towards Calvary.
By Jesus' shed blood at Calvary I was washed white as snow, daily, one by one the rags of unworthiness are being removed and my true being is coming to light.
Though I am still unworthy of the love of Jesus, I welcome it into my life, 'for I know that He will never abandon me or leave me in spite of myself.
Jesus came to save me from eternal death, by His word my eyes have been opened, now I can see to follow the road of life He wanted me to walk without falling prey to the sins that surround me.
I now have praise on my lips for Jesus, the Son of God, my Lord and my Savior, I now live for Him instead of myself.
One day my flesh will return to the ground from which it came, my soul will soar through the heavens and spend eternity with Jesus, never again to bear the mark of unworthiness.
