lyrics

Your past my future
I say I lay it all at the altar
Your failures I empower
With my every selfish desire

Offense I've taken
Unfairness I've granted
Mercy my treasure
I've buried deep down under

Mine to keep but never give

Who am I
To deserve a love like you
Who am I

Apologies unspoken
Waiting for the wrong to be righted
I hold out hoping
It's my silence that confronts them

That they'd see what I see
That they'd feel what I feel
Mercy withholding
Dare I think somehow I'm owed it

Mine to keep but never give

Who am I
To deserve a love like you
Who am I
To deserve a love like you

Act justly
Love mercy
Walk humbly with your God (x3)
Mine to keep and always give

Who am I
To deserve a love like you
Who am I
To deserve a love like you
