The very king of sinners bought by grace

abounding
*****
I see in me now the mindset of Spurgeon
My conclusion aligns that of John Newton
I can attest like Paul of Tarsus and call me;
Not a saint among God’s people, not a good fellow
But the very king of sinners bought by His grace
*****
I look back in my past and hope I can forget
I hope I could look back no longer and so forget
For only a dark history follows me; a sinful life
Yet I delight I can remember and marvel to know;
That I was but the very king of sinners now saved by grace
*****
It is good for me to have this mindset with me
To know like Augustine that only sin was mine
Realize that by my will I wouldn’t choose Him
Yet He choose me and caused in me to be like Him
Transforming the very king of sinners to a holy son
*****
My gospel remains the very gospel preached before
Not a gospel of good men loved by a good holy God
But desperate evil men loved and saved through Him
Mine is a gospel of true love, a gospel of God’s grace;
The grace that bought the very king of sinners for Him
*****
This is the gospel I must keep on preaching
As I look with pity those lost in their sins
I don’t judge them only to share with them
Share and tell them the very true gospel;
The grace allotted for all sinners even the vilest
