I’m not even the smartest person I know—You see it all.
But I am smart enough to see the foolishness
of those who deny you, Lord,
of those who are corrupt and vile
and dismissive of you.
You look from sunrise to sunsetI have no claim on grace.
for a speck of righteousness,
for a hint of holiness on this great wide earth.
You look to me, too, I know,
and see that I am as ruined by sin as the next guy.
We all are.
I have no place to stand.And as I do, I find you there.
Only to kneel.
You separate yourself from evildoersYou are my refuge.
but show up in the company of the humble and broken.
You call them righteous.
My only hope.Send your salvation to me again, still.
My only good.
