Not I ~

One Grace used with permission IBible Verses

Unmerited favor,
deserving, not I
mercy and redemption
not worthy, not I.

Pitiful old soul,
not worthy, not I
saved only by grace
deserving, not I.

Eternal salvation,
deserving, not I
justified freely
not worthy, not I

Miserable sinner,
not worthy, not I
unmerited love
deserving, not I

Immeasurable gift,
deserving, not I
incomprehensible grace
not worthy, not I

Undeserved favor,
mine to claim
by the mercy of God
in Jesus’ name!

Isaiah 53:6
King James Version

“All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”


The Gift of Grace ~

Grace  by Radikai Art free photo #8410

Oh, to know the gift of grace,
not earned by any act or deed
but given to every soul for favor
to fill our deepest want and need.

Oh, to know the gift of grace,
not worthy by any way or means
just filthy rags, covered in scarlet sins
till His blood ~ washed us clean.

Oh, to know the gift of grace,
not deserving to be set free at all
His life became sins only ransom
love’s redemption, for man’s fall.

Oh, to know the gift of grace,
not justified to accept or to receive
Jesus came to give the guilty sinner
the gift of mercy, so they’d believe.

Oh, to know the gift of grace,
where evil no longer rules or reigns
to know His scarred and healing hands
have released sins ~ crippling chains.

Ephesians 2:7-9
King James Version

“That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace
in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

To Know God ~

To Know God ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Oh, to know the love of God,
in all its awesome wonder
there would not be one soul
to Him, that wouldn’t surrender.

For, if each person really knew,
the compassion He has for all
upon His holy name
everyone, would come to call.

Oh, to know the grace of God,
and the debt that was paid
there would not be one soul
whose heart, couldn’t be swayed.

For, the gift of His unmerited favor,
to the world God has given
and Jesus lived, so He could die
so the sins of all would be forgiven.

Oh, to know the mercy of God,
the tenderness of His heart
there would not be one soul
that from Him, would ever part.

For, God created every creature,
for His pleasure and delight
and there is not one soul
who He could not make aright.

Oh, to know the peace of God,
to put an end to the terrors of war
then every soul would stand
with Jesus on heaven’s shore!

John 17:3
King James Version

“And this is life eternal,
that they might know thee
the only true God,
and Jesus Christ,
whom thou hast sent.”

As For Me ~

As For Me ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

As for me, I trust in the Lord,
to give or keep from me . . .
the answers to my every prayer
as He thinks they should be.

Who’s to quarrel with the One,
who understands my every need
is He not the One who commands
that it is I,  who must heed?

I know not why He favors me,
with the privileges of His mercy
nor why His blessings fall like rain
on an undeserving  soul like me.

Through the frost of an icy soul,
He thawed the inner core . . .
to a tragic death He surrendered
to show me He loved me more.

As for me, I trust in the Lord,
to give or keep from me . . .
all He has planned for my life
until such time with Him  I’ll be.

Psalm 26:11
King James Version

“But as for me,
I will walk in mine integrity:
redeem me, and be merciful unto me.”
