ARE WE WORTHY OF HIM?
Worthy, Worthy, is the Lamb that was slain
The Son of God to cleanse every stain.
His worthiness, friend is not in question.
He is most worthy of all our affection.
He’s worthy of all my time and labor
He’s worthy if I must die a martyr
He’s worthy of me down on my knees
asking for mercy with humble pleas.
He’s worthy to demand that I obey
and faithfully battle on a narrow way
He’s worthy if I loose family and friend
and give my life his truth to defend.
He’s worthy if I meet poverty sore
by preaching the gospel to the weak and poor
He’s worthy of praise, worship, and song
even when others have done me wrong.
He’s worthy to regulate my attire
and deny my flesh its chiefest desire
He’s worthy to trust as did Job of old
He’s worthy I witness through heat and cold
Yes, he’s worthy, ‘tis surely clear:
But from that issue might we now steer?
Another question we surely should muse
will He deem us worhty to choose?
Will we be found worthy His name to bear?
Will we be found worthy His glory to share?
Have we lost our life his will to pursue?
or sacrificed what our flesh wants to do?
Will we be found worthy when life is spent?
Will God deem us worthy of the Son he sent?
If I were God and Jesus my Son;
And I had seen all mankind has done,
I wouldn’t be loose with who I let in;
they’d surely have to give up their sin.
If my son’s glory they wanted to share;
If they desired that home he’d prepare;
They must then follow each word he gave,
Or I’d never deem them worthy to save.
They must honor and serve him in love
Appreciate that he came from above,
To save them from wrath ––their just reward.
Not live for their pleasure as they could afford
My wrath would burn bright to punish sore
all who took lightly the cross my son bore.
Those only who loved him would I forgive.
And only this group in Heaven would live.
