First Name Basis

by Mark Yow © 2019

You know the eternal King on a first name basis
The one who is known as the rock of ages
Aren’t you in awe of the position you’re in
You don’t even have to play in order to win

Let us all stop and seriously consider
We are the children of the great forgiver
There is nothing that comes close to compare
To be assured of that salvation seems to be fair

We rest upon His covenants and His purpose
He sent His only son Jesus to sacrificially serve us
Would He do that without the hope of our acceptance
Or His desire to drastically improve our circumstance

Just think of how much He must love each of us
To have such a plan of divinely procured justice
We are free and should be joyfully overwhelmed
Honored that He offers us future residence in His realm

So look in the mirror and see a valuable child of God
It doesn’t matter the shape or size of your bod
You have a value to Him worthy of His sacrifice
Now go testify to His goodness thru your mouth and life
