Lord, thank you for saving me and making me new



Thank you for grace and mercy all the way through



I know I am born again, I know who I am



A citizen of a kingdom not made by man



I know I’m not prefect yet but I’m on my way



Through your blood I’ll be covered on judgment day



Lord I am a sinner saved by your grave



There are so many that are taking my place



Walking in the same darkness, threading the same path



Looking to earn wages but not doing the math



From nation to nation, from town to town



But before you visit them, yes before you go down



May I have moment Lord, though I am but mere dust



There are some concerns that I would like to discuss



I know you’ve been merciful, and you’ve been kind



But before you bring wrath give me a little more time



All men are your creation and it’s man that you cherish



And it’s not your desire that any should perish



Let me go talk to them, I know where they’ve been



I know what it’s like to be seduced by sin



Fooled by its deception again and again



Would it not be worth the wait if we could save at least ten



For you the good shepherd who would leave the ninety nine



And rejoice over the one you searched long to find



Is that not what you left your church here to do



Search out the lost and bring them to you



I’ll speak but once more, I know the day is well spent



One last plea before your wrath is sent



Will not the judge of all the earth do right



Allow me a little more time to shine your light



Genesis 18: 22-33
