What Did God See?

by Jason Kirk Bartley

I asked the Lord what He saw in me so many years ago.
As I heard His response,
tears began to flow.
When I saw I was a sinner,
sinning was for me,
God could see me as a Christian,
my heart set free.
And when I saw a failure,
wanting to end it all,
Jesus saw a humble spirit,
on His name I'd call.
When I saw a person lost in all I'd done,
God saw me forgiven for everything
through His Son.
When I saw hopeless struggling to make
ends meet,
God saw me walking in His favor,
preaching in the street.
When I didn't think I could go on,
Jesus picked me up on my feet.
In Christ, I reside before your eyes,
my life is made complete.
