I PONDER PONDEROUSLY

Grace is greater than all my sin.

Calvary proves that to me!

I was a slave to sin in times past

But Christ has set me free!

.

.

Never again will any sin

Develop a stranglehold.

The most natural thing to do is confess,

To receive now, I am bold!

.

.

“Forget not all His benefits!”

His provision has been made.

When Jesus died on Calvary,

My sins were on Him laid!

.

.

He took them unequivocally,

Sins!  Yes, all of them!

He knows my weakness and covers all!

Nor does He me condemn!

.

.

I do not give up the struggle!

Does not that keep me strong?

God’s goodness leads me to repent! (*)

In his strength all, all along!

.

.

But I am not strong!  God knows and cares,

Do I give up the fight?

Of course not!  But then that is my strength,

Confess it is always right!

.

.

“Be strong in the Lord and in His strength

Of His might.”  Where is boasting then?

Our boast is in our Lord over all!

Of course, we depend on Him!

.

.

“His strength,” we have nothing to brag about

For Jesus did it all!

In Christ we boast in Him alone!

In pride we only fall!

.

.

If when we sin our Advocate,

Christ Jesus crucified,

Delivered us from sins wage!

So there is no room for pride!

.

.

(*) Romans 2:4 (Read it!  That is an order!)
