The Mystery. Why Me? Who am I?

Why Me, Lord? By Kris Kristofferson
Why me, Lord, what have I ever done
To deserve even one
Of the pleasures I’ve known?
Tell me, Lord, what did I ever do
That was worth loving you
Or the kindness you’ve shown?

Who Am I? By John Mark Hall
Not because of who I am
But because of what You’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done
But because of who You are.

The Wonder. By ?[i]
O ‘tis a glorious mystery,
That I should ever saved be —
‘tis a wonder, wonder, wonder!

Praise God from whom all blessing flow!
