I worry the world will not value me
I fear I may not be liked a lot
Perhaps I will be discriminated
Who knows I may even be hated
For my worth is in you.
I shall not look outside and hate me
I dare not love myself too much either
But one thing I delight in;
Is knowing my true worth
Far above rubies, a wealth of grace
So why should I worry of the names I get?
Why should it be my concern that am loved less
Even if the whole world hated me,
Still I would rejoice and sing
For my worth is in you not out there
I will live in peace and joy.
Delighting even in persecution
Smiling when I should cry
For when I think of the cross.
There I see my worth
Hide me in your peace Lord
Guard my heart from sinfulness
Enrich me with your living Word.
Reminding me that this ain’t home
That my home is with you.

O that my concern will not be what identity men give to me but on my God-given identity and that I may lose grip on the things of this world as I turn my face upon Him and get hold of that which Christ has held up for me.
