Why GOD Chose Me?
by Russell Kelfer

 

My talents? Is that what He saw long ago?
My talents? I see that the answer is, "No."
My looks? Just a mirror dispels that thought.
If that's why He called me, He called me for naught.

My talents? Is that what He saw long ago?
My talents? I see that the answer is, "No."
My looks? Just a mirror dispels that thought.
If that's why He called me, He called me for naught.

My wisdom? Not even a trace do I see.
Then why? Tell me why did my Saviour call me?
And just like the wind as it glides through the sky,
A voice, softly answers, "Yes, I'll tell you why.

"Because, when I looked, you were nothing to see,
And when I shine through nothing, then men will see Me.
I call men of weakness, so I can be strong;
I call even the downcast and give them a song.

"I call out of nothing; so when something appears,
Men give ME the glory, and down through the years,
It has been so, though the world is appalled:
Not many noble nor wise have been called."

"I call out of nothing; so when something appears,
Men give ME the glory, and down through the years,
It has been so, though the world is appalled:
Not many noble nor wise have been called."

The poor man, the weak man, though often despised,
Come alive at God's touch, and the world is surprised.
The fruitless, the failures, the dregs of the earth,
Become princes and kings when God's Son gives them birth.
