He Chose Me
My God has chosen me - I don't know His perfect plan;
I don't know His reasons; I can't begin to understand;
all that He has in store for me or where he'd have me go,
But I must do what He asks me to do- for He has chosen me, I know.
I'm not a "perfect Christian",
I'm not even worthy of His name
But apparently He saw something,
cause He loves me just the same!
How many times did I run away,
and turn my back on Him,
unable or unwilling to give in to His call;
He could have said, "Forget it!
You're not worth it! Just go on!"
But He didn't, and I'm so thankful for his mercy
and His patience that kept me through it all.
Many times I tried to be
what I thought He wanted me to,
but I'd just mess it up again, and fall flat on my face
in shame and confusion, once more I'd run away
But God just kept on waiting, cause He knew
there'd come the day
I'd turn around and realize
it had to be His way.
I couldn't do it on my own,
in myself I can do nothing--
but if I'll just be still and willing to listen to His call,
through this ugly worthless vessel,
My God will do it ALL!
