Must I continually be more ashamed of introducing Jesus than He is?
He freely gave, have I freely given?
He called me out, have I spoken of him?
He gave me life, why do I play dead?
He came to me, seeking me in love, why do I deny his existence?
He bought me with a price, have I counted the cost?
He made me in his image, why do I look away?
He came to rescue, why do I not carry others out of the fire?
If my heart is his, may my light shine brighter.
He set me free; I will break your chains.
He spoke the Word; I will go to the nations.
His hands were pierced, my hands will give.
His life was surrendered; I will give my life also.
My heart is changed by perfect grace.
You gave me your life, and now in that life that I have, I will give it back to you.
