We don’t measure up
And that is the point!
That’s the reason the Savior came!
We all needed saving
We’re all born in sin.
There’s salvation found in His Name.

The moment we think,
“Oh, I’m not like that,”
That’s precisely the moment we sin!
When our foolish pride
Puts our nose in the air
It blinds us from looking within.

Our God is holy
And just as I am
I could never stand before Him.
But just as I am
His grace has saved me
And now I’m IN Christ – forgiven of sin.

Let’s never compare
Our life with another
Never think more of self than we ought.
We don’t measure up
And that is the point
It’s not about us, but the Grace of our God.
