A Song for the Season

Oh, do you believe in my Savior?
You honor the day of His birth,
But have you received His forgiveness,
And seen Him for what He is worth?

He came as a babe in a manger,
And humbly He dwelt among men,
Yet He is the high King of heaven:
In judgement He’s coming again.

He’s righteous and holy and perfect.
His judgements are all of them right.
We fall so far short of His glory,
That all are condemned in His sight.

I beg you to call on His mercy,
Before your short life is all spent.
He’s free with His grace and forgiveness,
And offers a chance to repent.

Don’t cling to your own silly merit;
Don’t cling to your sins or your pride;
But give yourself now to the Savior;
Today for Christ Jesus decide.
