If you tell me how good you’ve been
How many awards you’ve earned
How many distinctions to your name,
I can’t relate.
If you tell me how wise you have been
How kind is your heart
How much sacrifice has been given
You’ll leave me in a wake.
The only victory I’ve known
The only battles overcome
The only character I’ve won
Has been by His love alone.
My strength has been a gift.
My growth gained by His mercy
My path redirected by His grace
This is the only only goodness I’ve known.
But, what a goodness it has been.
Full of compassion and mercy
Always pushing me to grow
But loving me every second of the way.
This is the only love I know.
Psalm 63:3 Because Your mercy is better than life, my lips will give You praise.
