The Only Thing

I can’t be credited for the lyrics to Ronnie Freeman’s song, but they echo my own recent thoughts:

The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus.

Click on the link to listen to his track on YouTube, or read the lyrics below.

For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.” – Romans 7:18

I heard someone say the other  day
They’d seen in me true love displayed
Blessed by something I had done for them

No sooner did they speak those words
I found myself somehow disturbed
Uneasy as I took their compliment

Because I know the heart inside this man
And I know the truth of who I am

The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus
The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus
I’ll live long enough to know no matter what this life may show
The only thing that’s good in  me is Jesus

If you could walk the hallways of my heart
And see  things as they really are
I wonder if you might be surprised

Seeing faded walls of pride and fear
Rooms I’ve filled with faithless tears
And corners where I’ve stood in compromise

Oh but you’d see the work His grace has done
And you’d know just how far I’ve come

The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus
The only thing  that’s good in me is Jesus
I’ll  live long enough to know no matter what this life may show
The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus

And in a thousand years
When the dust of this world clears
And I look back on my life and see in perfect light

Yeah, yeah, the only thing that’s good in me is Jesus
The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus

I know me well enough to know yeah
The  only thing that’s good in me is yeah
The  only thing that’s good in me is yeah

I  know me well enough to know no matter what this life may show
The only thing that’s good in me is, yeah, is Jesus

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
