Unmerited Love

I have not honored you as I should
I have not praised you for all your good
Still you love me as no other would
I have turned a blind eye
Towards the truth
Trusted in lie’s 
Chased after many falsehoods
Still you love me as no other would
Every day you are there
Listening attentively for no other reason
Other than you care
Nothing I have done merits your love
Your sacrifice, your mercy or your grace
Obedience is all I can give 
And though I have lacked even in this
Still you have loved me as no other would
Surrendering now once again
In obedience as a witness of your good
Not because you have refused me
But because you loved me like no other could.
