When you look into a mirror
whose looking back at you,
not the person God intended,
He meant us sinless through and through.
We were made to walk with Jesus,
a greater blessing can’t be found;
now we sin because we’re sinners
and not the other way around.
Christ built a paradise in Eden,
we’d walk with Him by day;
Adam and Eve desired their freedom,
it sent us to our earthly graves.
Now we start our lives as sinners,
a rebellious gene inside,
original sin is what they call it,
a holy God couldn’t let it slide.
The Bible’s a mirror, reflecting who we are,
it’s shining light helps us to see
the many ways that we are broken
and what God intended us to be.
But the mirror’s just a spot light,
it can’t change us, set us free,
it took the author of the Bible
to do that for you and me.
Though we want to think it’s magic
or scientific to explain,
it’s a miracle from heaven
by the sovereign God who reigns.
Without Jesus we are hopeless
with a debt we cannot pay,
the Spotless Lamb showed His compassion
paid our debt, showed us the way.
God the Man made worst of sinners
so we last could come in first,
kept the law that we had broken,
paid our debt to save the worst.
Now we’re chosen not rejected
God himself selected us,
not that we deserved it
He didn’t want us superfluous.
So the key is where we’re looking
and the mirror that we use,
most mirrors just feed our egos,
only one helps us to choose;
there we meet The Word, our Savior,
it’s The Word that we must trust,
He spoke the world into existence
and only He saves those of us.
