unworthy treasure

unworthy but not worthless
my freedom isn’t free
eternal life, i could not earn
the price He paid for me

the gift of true salvation
from consequence and claim
no longer slave to sin and death
i live to praise His name

unworthy but not worthless
a treasure bought with blood
i live to show the world my God
of sovereign, perfect love

excluded not exclusive
set apart, not set above
chosen for a purpose
this aching world needs love

love those who are against me
do good to those who hate
as long as God will give them breath
i know it’s not too late

for the power of my Savior
to claim their hearts and mind
so i let Him love them through me
so one day they too may find

they’re unworthy but not worthless
a treasure bought with blood
a priceless price was paid for them
they too may know this love
