I am not a good man

I know too well my failings

they are far too numerous

no one could ever believe

any claim of my innocence


But God is a good God

He knows my failings well

He knows their number

He knows I am not innocent

and yet He says He loves me


How good it is to know He knows

each of my numberless failings

each task Ill do or leave undone

each futile grasp at innocence

and yet He has made me clean


oh! my great good God

whom else would I dare serve

what other god could hold me

but You alone, above all that is

Who knows my all and yet loves!


My Great Good God
