No Right to Proclaim

God, I’m sorry for the way I’ve done.
I’ve no right to proclaim
that You will always love me so,
and even know me by name.
Your love is too merciful
and glorious to shame,
yet all I do is continue sinning.
Yes, I’m the one to blame.
How do I make this brand new start
that’s living out Your will?
I cannot even stay away
from the things I love still.
You’re such a loving God of we,
how do we earn Your care?
I’m just glad to know You’re so forgiving
or else You wouldn’t be there.
