great God

You have placed me here

a man

imperfect

unholy

yet a man

placed here

to glorify You

 

why?

 

I could never achieve

the perfection that You are

how could it be that You

of awesome might

enjoy praise from me

a creature of mud

 

I stand here in awe

of a gift so great

which You gave so free

that makes me praise Your name

that allows me praise to sing

 

truly, You are great
