You Clothe the Beggar

You Clothe the Beggar

You never give up
Relentless and pursuing God
How can you continue to love me?

What is my heart
That you love it so?

When I examine myself
I am bewildered.

You prize me.

What is my righteousness?
What is my character?

Surly, I am like a beggar
Who after being clothed
In the kings garments
Went out and rolled in the mud.

I have not known the true value of your gift.

Yet you offer your love to me
Calling me your daughter.

God, I am yours
Help me to live as yours
Not as a beggar
May I in return
Be as you
Clothing the beggar
Remembering you clothed me.
