You Don't Have To Be Perfect

My body may be mangled - I can't write or talk - My legs may be immobile therefore I 
cannot walk - My hands and arms may tremble from nerves I can't control - But there's one 
thing that will not change - God's Spirit is in my soul.  Although I can't express in words the 
way I really feel - I know the love of Jesus Christ within my heart is real - I know some 
people look at me and think and deaf and blind - But they don't even have a clue what's 
going through my mind - Of course there are some times I think of how I used to be - But 
God and I've been talking and He has a job for me - He wants me like I am for now so 
people know it's true - You don't have to be perfect for God to work through you - Yes the 
Lord is using me just the way I am - He is my great Shepherd and I'm His precious lamb - It 
may not be until the day the Lord comes back again - but that will be the greatest day there 
has ever been That day I'll kneel before God's throne and with my voice I'll sing - then I will 
leap into the arms of Jesus Christ my King!
