Nothing Good In Me
© 2018 Tom D Blakely
~

In myself I find much weakness
Sin and selfishness.
In Christ’s blood there’s only virtue
Love and forgiveness.

There is nothing good within me
Christ’s my righteousness.
Blessed Spirit make me like Him
Full of grace and peace.

~

Sometimes I fall into error
Trusting self alone.
Jesus’ words stand to correct me
Teaching right from wrong.

There is nothing good within me
Christ’s my righteousness.
Blessed Spirit make me like Him
Full of grace and peace.

~

By myself I’m prone to wander
From the path God’s shown.
Jesus guides and will direct me
To my heavenly home.

There is nothing good within me
Christ’s my righteousness.
Blessed Spirit make me like Him
Full of grace and peace.

“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.”
[Romans 7:18-19]
