Not My Goodness

Not my goodness, not my zeal
Can explain my Father's love.
Not excitements that I feel...
All's a gift from Him above.

My good works could never earn
Grace for just one sin I've done.
I have earned God's burn
Untold ages, like the sun.

But in mercy he forgave,
Washed me, cleansed me white as snow.
Jesus gave his life to save,
And his mercies ever flow.

He will fill my ev'ry lack.
He will guide me all my days.
I can never pay him back;
Only serve with grateful praise.

We love because he first loved us. (1 John 4:19 ESV)
