According to Our Need

Not because we are deserving
But according to our need,
Does our Father bless His children -
When we're hungry He does feed.

It was not that we were worthy,
Our Saviour bled and died,
But because our hearts were sinful -
Through His death we're justified.

Not because we love and serve Him
Does our God His mercy show,
For we never could deserve Him,
But because we need Him so!

With His Grace and Loving kindness
Our Good Shepherd His flock leads -
Not because we are deserving,
But because of ALL OUR NEEDS!
