I Wish I Could I can I will!

 

I Wish I Could I can I will!
By Tom D Blakely
~

I wish I could convey to all
The wonders of my Saviour true.
But why would any believe me
When I once thought the way they do?

For who needs God, I used to think
I’m young and free and want to live;
Not be constrained by boring rules
And I need nothing God can give!

You’d think a sinner like myself
Could reach another easily?
But I know well their greatest need
Which they can never get from me.

I cannot give them faith to see
Why sin has earned the wrath of God.
That sin itself has made them blind
And they must have their sight restored.

The light of Christ must pierce their gloom
He died for sin and now is risen.
The Spirit must reveal to them:
God cannot tolerate their sin!

I wish I could convey to all
The wonders of my Saviour true.
But why would any believe me?
It’s simple: Because God wants them to!

Thank You Lord for using Your people
To spread the gospel of salvation
Without our help Lord You are able
But want us to share, in Your blessing!

 ‘Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’
[Matthew 28:19-20]
