I was recently reminded of this song. It asks such a good question. “Who am I?”
When you meditate on the fact that the God of the Universe allowed His perfect, sinless Son to come to the earth, live as a man, and die a torturous death for people who didn’t even love Him it is almost incomprehensible.
The Bible tells us that we love Him because He first loved us. Truly without God’s love we would not know love, and the greatest expression of that love was Jesus dying for the ungodly.
Came and dwelt among the lowly such as I
To suffer shame and such disgrace
On Mount Calvary take my place
Then I ask myself a question, Who am I?
Who am I that a King would bleed and die for?
Who am I that He would pray not my will Thine for?
That to an old rugged cross He’d go, for who am I?
Just be true, I’ll give to you a life forever
I wonder what I could have done
To deserve God’s only Son
Fight my battles till they’re won, Who am I?
