Why Me? (Ft. Molline Of Mission Driven)

 

Verse 1:

Rain/ the flood/ 8 in the ark/ a remnant chosen by God/ true love/

Surviving in the ark/ but feeling the pain/ of losing family & friends in the rain/ grateful/ but feeling undeserving/ why me God? / I didn’t earn this/ though You call me righteous/ i don’t deserve it/ then he hears the screams of people drowning/ I was a sinner like them/ unclean like them/ & though I repented/ I still did it again/ & right then/ he remembers many things/ that he did to deserve the flood & not the ark/ then Noah weeps/ overwhelmed by Grace/ broken/ he sees God in a new way/ & as the waters rise/ & more people die/ many years later/ we understand grace.

Chorus:

Nothing in my hand I bring/ simply to Thy cross I cling/

Nothing in my hand I bring/ nothing/ nothing/

You loved me when I was incomplete/

Embraced me/ when I didn’t deserve it/

I will never understand/ why me?

Verse 2:

Why me Lord? /  I didn’t deserve it/ we were both sinners/ but you let me live/ when I should have died/ Lord You put Your hand on me/ then You showed me grace/ do receive my praise/ coz/ none of us deserve the ark/ we all deserve judgment/ to die in the flood/ yet You see us in our sin/ & You run to us/ with compassion/ You kiss & embrace us/ & like the sinful woman/; I will bow & weep/ pouring the oil of my life/ at Your feet/ give You best of me/ & the rest of me/ loving much/ because I’ve been forgiven much/ from the ark/ to the cross/ the purpose is shown/ a depiction of grace/ & a call to the lost/ the true picture of grace/ God’s riches/ at Christ’s expense.

Chorus:

Nothing in my hand I bring/ simply to Thy cross I cling/

Nothing in my hand I bring/ nothing/ nothing/

You loved me when I was incomplete/

Embraced me/ when I didn’t deserve it/

I will never understand/ why me?

Verse 3:

God loves you/ & He’s calling you/ from the pit of sin/ that you have been living in/ to set your soul free/ to make your eyes see/ that He’s everything your heart has been longing for/ turn your eyes/ look to Him/ He’s the only hope/ give your heart/ give your life/ give your everything/ if you’re looking for the answer/ it’s the cross/ where the blood still flows/ for the lost/ He loves you/ He died for you/ hold onto His grace/ & turn back to Him.

Chorus:

Nothing in my hand I bring/ simply to Thy cross I cling/

Nothing in my hand I bring/ nothing/ nothing/

You loved me when I was incomplete/

Embraced me/ when I didn’t deserve it/

I will never understand/ why me?
