LORD, I DON’T KNOW HOW…
Lord, I don’t know how To love You like I should,
After everything You’ve done for me.
Lord, I don’t know who else Would have gone that far for me,
What You Yourself endured upon that tree.
Lord, the unthinkable agonies,
As You were hanging from that cross,
What a price You had to pay to set me free!
How do I show my appreciation,
And demonstrate my thankfulness,
For what You did for someone like me?
As I look back upon my life,
I don’t understand what it was You saw,
Some good reason for You to die for me.
Lord, I can never repay You,
But I am forever in Your debt,
The great lengths You went to, just to ransom me.
In my own mind I am worthless,
A wretched specimen of a human being,
What on earth could’ve motivated You to love me?
So, Lord, won’t You teach me,
To love You as I ought to,
Blood-bought as I am by You for all eternity.

Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
