Why do you stay, Lord?
So often I ignore you
Why do you call me?
When I fight for my own way
Why do you love me?
As clearly I love others more
Why do you forgive me?
Before I even see my sin

I’m baffled by your grace
The unbounded love you give
I’m dumbstruck by the patience
Shown to this self-centered man
I’m in awe of the mercy
You offer new every day
Here you are with me
Even if I am not with you
You defy explanation
And exceed expectation
Thank you
