Saul / Paul

“The gospel of justifying faith means that while Christians are, in themselves still sinful and sinning, yet in Christ, in God’s sight, they are accepted and righteous. So we can say that we are more wicked than we ever dared believe, but more loved and accepted in Christ than we ever dared hope — at the very same time." - Tim Keller

 


I was always one of the righteous
Never lived outside of the lines
Kept a close watch on the whitewash
Disguising the dead bones inside
Disguising the dead bones inside

I was always one of the good ones
Keeping tabs on everyone else
Sure that I was one of the chosen
But I was a child of hell
But I was a child of hell

But You buried me in the bright light
Yeah You held my eyes to the sun
'Till I could see that
I was worse than I ever feared I could be but somehow
I was loved more than I ever dared to believe
Because of You

I was always one of the blameless
Or at least that's what I believed
Never thought I could have been blinded
'Till I could no longer see
'Till I could no longer see

But You buried me in the bright light
Yeah You held my eyes to the sun
'Till I could see that
I was worse than I ever feared I could be but somehow
I was loved more than I ever dared to believe
You showed me
I was worse than I ever feared I could be but somehow
I was loved more than I ever dared to believe
Because of You
