My Earnings


I have earned not grace but wrath
God's fire that ever burns but not consumes
So pain keeps gnawing on

I've been proud and stubborn too
A prig with pride in self-made laws
That I alone kept well

Only grace could rescue me
God's goodness bright and undeserved
Christ Jesus yes for me


For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes. For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.
--2 Corinthians 1:19-20 (ESV2011)
