I am a wretch undone
Such a contradiction my life’s become
Yet I’m holding on to the Son
When will my life and His word be plumb?

Thankful for a God whose love is unswerving
Whose love is greater than I could ever dream
When my battles are so unnerving
And all around me, the impossible seems

But when I look up at the stars
There’s still a peace I’m able to find
All the planets Earth, Jupiter, and Mars
Within this vast universe, you reveal to man your mind

Yet our thoughts and Yours are not the same
To have the mind of Christ is on another level
That’s why I’m grateful to know your name
Whenever I am in a fight with the devil

Though the odds don’t always look that great
And I feel as I’m about to lose the fight
I know that You are never too late
To make the odds just and right

Although a wretch undone I seem to be
There are many wrong things I’m bound to do
You have always been near and here for me
Therefore Father I know I can always count on you.
