Rubbish!

 

Rubbish!

It’s all rubbish!
It’s all rubbish!
All my charity work
That I do to look good
But I don’t do for Christ –
It’s all rubbish!

It’s all rubbish!
It’s all rubbish!
The injustice I fight
All my zeal for what’s right
But I don’t do for Christ –
It’s all rubbish!

It’s all rubbish!
It’s all rubbish!
My religion and works
That leaves me justified
Justified without Christ –
It’s all rubbish!

No more rubbish!
No more rubbish!
May I dump it and live
Every day of my life
For a treasure that lasts –
All for Jesus!

‘Yet indeed I also count all things loss for
the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord,
for whom I have suffered the loss of all things,
and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ.’
[Philippians 3:8]
