IF YOU KNEW ME

IF YOU KNEW ME
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Would you love me if you knew me,
In this heart of wicked bent?
Would you know me if you saw me,
In my mind ... and where I went?

Would you tolerate or keep me,
At a distance far away?
Would you know me, recognize me,
Still receive me … anyway?

Many thoughts I often wonder,
Many times I would profess;
There is little that is lovely,
In this heart of sinfulness.

Simply nothing, simply needy,
Simply coming to embrace;
Simple mercy, simple pardon,
Simply sweet, amazing grace.

“If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with You, that You may be feared.”
Psalm 130:3-4
