We Can Never Earn Your Forgiveness

One of my latest compositions - I've got a tune in my head, just need to work on the arrangement...

We can never earn your forgiveness,
That’s not the way it works.
Your Son Jesus died to save us,
We don’t have to prove our worth.
Your love is poured out freely,
Jesus paid the cost,
We’re free from sin’s enslavement,
We know that we’re no longer lost.


Your son Jesus came down from Heaven,
To the Earth from above
He gathered his disciples
And he taught them of your love
He rode in to loud hosannas
And then he was crucified
He rose again victorious
And ascended to your side


Through trials and tribulations
We hold fast to your word
In times of pain and suffering,
We call out to our Lord
You help us, and re-assure us
You show us the way to go,
You lead us and we follow,
You guide us along the road


Oh, God is good, yes God is good
God is gracious, and God is love
Oh, God is good, yes God is good
He reigns in Heaven above


You know our every weakness,
You love us just the same,
You call out from the heavens,
We rejoice at your name.
Each morning brings new blessings,
You are everything we need.
You forgive us our trespasses,
You give us our daily bread.


You only want what’s best for us,
You give us good things
To you our Father in Heaven
Our treasures we bring
When we put on your armour, God
Our enemies run and hide
Forever and forever, Lord
We’ll walk side by side


Oh, God is good, yes God is good
God is gracious, and God is love
Oh, God is good, yes God is good
He reigns in Heaven above
