The Greater 2-12-06


Just look at me now. If you want, you can stare.
And tell the whole world. But I really don't care.
Wrinkle your eyebrows and look down your nose,
And practice that jeer as you straighten your clothes.

We all know by now - it's a very, old song;
That you're always right - and I'm always wrong,
While the speck in my eye is driving me crazy,
The log in your eye has become downright lazy.

I know I'm not perfect - for only One is,
But it doesn't matter. I know that I'm His.
There's only one difference between you and me -
For you're still in prison, and I was set free!

You can yell, you can scream, you can beat me to death,
But I'll keep on saying until my very last breath;
"Don't look at me - then judge my Creator,
For I am the lesser and He is the Greater."
