I Do Not Believe It

I do not believe it that

You would come, and die for me

The rejected of the earth

 

I do not believe it, that

Still, after all these years of hardship and rebellion You

Still remain here by my side

 

I do not believe it that

You would come, and give Yourself

That You would give Your Son for me

 

Who am I, who am I to deserve

Such love, such mercy from

You the unfailing God

 

For in Your eyes, truly I

Am nothing without You

Truly I, am lost without

 

Your unending grace

 

So how could I, ever hope

To believe such a thing

That You, the uncreated God

 

Have loved me as You have

 

That You have done, so much for me

That You order all creation, and yet

Choose to look at me

 

I will not believe it!

 

Yet, it is You

My God unfailing that

Pushes me, and calls me to

 

Believe in such a gift

 

It is You, and You alone that

Calls me to trust in You, and in that trusting come

To revelation of Your love, that I may see

 

The reality, the beauty of

You, my God, who has no equal

You who have loved me so

 

I am lost for words!

 

So help me God, to believe it so

Help me to trust in You

And in that trusting, find You as

 

You truly are

 

Benevolent, merciful

Loving and forever true

Always constant, never failing

 

My God who has no equal!

 

Yet the mystery, still remains

That You would come for me

For it was I, who trespassed You

 

I who failed and denied Your name

 

Yet it was You who came

It was You who took my place, and died upon

Tree called Calvary

 

And You took it all, You bore my shame

You freed me from my sins

You took Your own wrath, that I may be

 

Free and redeemed by Your blood

Pure and holy by the name, by that beautiful name

The name of Jesus Christ

 

The mystery Himself

 

And I choose to believe it!

For You have proved Yourself, merciful and true

In every day, in every pain

 

You keep drawing me to You

 

So I choose, this day to trust

In You the never ending God

To love, to hope, in You alone

 

My God who never fails

My God who has no equal, I

I believe that You

 

Are good, and true, and trustworthy

For now and all days

For have paid it all, yes You have paid the price for me

 

To be Your own child, chosen by

You my God in Heaven!

For that is mystery, that we

 

Did not choose You

 

But rather that You, oh merciful God

In Your goodness and Your love

Chose to save us from Your wrath, by Your own blood

 

Yes, You gave Your Son for us

You the uncreated God, the beautiful Mystery

Help us to believe in You, and Your goodness that
We may declare it before all men

 

That we, may be

As lights here on this earth

Reflecting You, and Your goodness

 

Here upon the earth

 

So help us to, trust in You

And continually believe

That You are, exactly as You say You are

 

The God who never fails

The God who chose us first, and He who died

And rose again to save us from

 

Ourselves and our sin
To make us Your own, to make us free

Able to fellowship with You,

You the uncreated God
We believe in You

We call on You this day!

 

For we are, in desperate need

We are yearning for You again

Come and heal, come restore our lands

 

Have mercy on our sinful borders and

Bring us back to You!

For we are nothing, without You

 

We need You in this place

 

So come, and move in us again

Come and change us with reality, with fire of

Your Love and holy name

 

Come and make us, Yours alone

Help us to believe

That You are, as You say You are
And that You can be trusted, You who are

You who are the unfailing God

Our God who has no equal
The God who has no end!
