The Lord Jesus died that we might have new life in his name
To bring victory in repentance as we turn from sin and shame 
We're called not to boast about what we should consider loss
But to learn the way of suffering, but to glory in the cross 

But to do justly and to love mercy
And to walk humbly with our God 
But to do justly and to love mercy
And to walk humbly with our God 

God's not impressed with a self-exalting attitude
To build ministries and kingdoms and then boast of what we do 
God isn't blessed just because things are done in his name
What we think is to our glory, in his eyes reveals our shame 

We're all called to die to ourselves in everything
Including the little things we night tend to ignore 
And we're called to the holiness Jesus dies to bring
To be a sweet offering to the honor of our Lord 

Sometimes in pride we'll chalk up all the good we can
Then compare ourselves to others and despise our fellow man 
Sometimes we're quick just to see mistakes another's made
And we're just as slow to see that we're walking in the same brigade 

Words & Music by Geof Kimber, © Aiyura Music, PO Box 2202, Myrtle Beach, SC 29578,

Let Christ be my greatest treasure; knowing Him my greatest joy; honoring Him my greatest passion;
dishonoring Him my greatest fear; trusting Him my greatest confidence; serving Him my greatest ambition.
Nothing else matters.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom,
and as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs
with gratitude in your hearts to God...
Col 3:16
