by Paul Mayes Jamar
For I have failed you time and again, Disappointing you, yet you’re my Friend. Jesus, You’ve sealed me for success, though I am impoverished by the World’s guess, I am enriched on a daily basis, You see, Filled with contentment to continue to be Your slave Lord Jesus beyond the grave, Because I am a lowly wretch You did save. If only I would achieve some greatness, But my redemption is so adequate to bless For eternity and beyond, I am Yours at rest. Lead me to Jesus, my savior, proven He is the best.
