I am not fit to stoop down
and untie the thong of his sandals
(Mark 1:7; NASB 1995).
I’m not fit to walk beside you,
Yet I follow, close behind.
I’m not fit to worship you, Lord,
Yet I dare, for you are kind.
I’m not fit to gaze upon you,
Yet I long to see your face.
I’m not fit, Lord, to address you,
Yet I trust your love and grace.
I’m not fit to touch your sandal,
Yet I dare to kiss your feet.
I’m not fit to be your servant,
Yet I sit with you, and eat.
I’m not fit to ask your help, Lord,
Yet you share my pain and fear.
I’m not fit to have you living in my heart,
Yet you are here.
Christ is all that matters,
and he lives in all of us
(Colossians 3:11; NLT).
