Just wondering

Just wondering,
how could this be.
You make me really wonder
why should this ever be

I keep asking why love me so,
despite my very shortcomings.
You forever treasure me
just wondering,
‘cos I ne’er cease to ponder

Why do the things you do?
Why keep me in the hollow of your palm?
Even in untruthfulness and sin
for heaven’s sake still kept this fool

Imagine I so wretched
Truly, poverty wrenched
Imagine I so ungrateful
to pieces you love me still

I’m selfish and biased
unrepentant and egocentric.
Yet, I, so full of streets trick
you love without condition.

Why do you love me so?
I am crazy and unfit
yes, you know I am
Yet, from your mercy benefit

Just wondering why
why you care so much for me?
Your intentions amaze me
for I understand not your make

I could go on and on and on.
On this attitude so disheartening
but what will be my gain
If I don’t turn to you

I am but awed
by the aura of your awe
In you my anchor holds.
Dear potter my life completely mold

You qualify the unqualified
The rejected made a cornerstone
On Calvary my sins atone
what more be said not already done

You’ve won me over
unbelievable though, but flattered
The devil’s plan altered
I surrender Lord to take over

All want to say is make me over
so as to turn anew and tenable;
that I may completely transform,
to sweeten purpose on earth.

Your principle help understand
that I may against the tides stand
In your presence forever present
just to be far from evil’s scent.

To you alone my life commit
not to another but you alone
My soul pants after thee to meet
never to leave but stay true to you alone

In the ocean of this love drenched
…the pavilion of your trust secured
The Lord truly my fortress
in this sanctity I surely rest.
