Who am I before you, God?

A poem, By Amanda Mason

Who am I before you, God?

Who is it that you have planned for me to be?

Who am I among you?

In Christ Jesus, my Lord?

Who am I before you, God?

If the Spirit lives in me now, Lord,

Then why do I still sin every day?

Although the Holy Spirit transformed me, they say,

Who am I before you, God?

Men say it’s impossible, but you say it’s possible to preach your word.

Who am I, then, within you, Oh my God?

If I am saved, then how can I still feel the same?

Who am I before you, God?

But a sinner always?

Regardless of how righteous I was or how much I changed,

If good works are meaningless, then there’s no point in repenting.

Who am I before you, God?

Who is it you see?

If you elected and adopted me,

If that’s the case, then who am I?

Who am I before you, God?

Do you see all my faults?

or my heart?

I find peace and salvation in your son, yet his life was the cost.

Who am I before you, God?

Will I meet you one day?

Will you answer my questions?

Will I still feel the same way?

Who am I before you, God?

A daughter of the high king?

or a child of God?

a believer or a sinner?

Who am I before you, God?

Baptized in forgiveness?

Yet I am limited in the ways I can love you.

Standing before you, I am both guilty and ashamed.

Who am I before you, God?

Who am I before you, Jesus?

Who am I before you, Holy Spirit?

Who am I now that I am saved?
