all I could be...

If all the world were given to me
If I were perfect, as the world would see
The life long question, "what could I be"
The same answer, "nothing but me"

All riches and treasure may fall to me
Perhaps all beauty and graceful I would be
But from all that I can see,
It's the same and sinful, unworthy me

All that I am, all that I want to be
All that I wish and yearn to see
All of that, I wish would flee
Especially the same girl who is named me.

You gave Yourself to whom I could be
All glory and splendor You left, exchanged for me
My eyes are opened and now all I see
Your merciful self, instead of me.
