Someone worth dying for

we want to be
someone worth dying for
that we would be worthy
of God’s grace
that Christ’s sacrifice
would make sense, for us,
that we would be one
that God would choose to save
but we misunderstand grace
none of us are worthy
we don’t earn salvation
all of us are guilty
of a capital offense
sin is the stain
upon our bodies
only by God’s choice
are we set free
