I’ll Never get it Right

I’ll never get it right
I’ll always say the wrong things
Do the wrong things
I’ll speak when I should be silent
And not say the right things at the right time
I will criticise when I should praise
And condone when I should condemn
However hard I try
I will never be good enough
I will always fall short of my own standards
Let alone the standards of others
Or your ultimate standard
I will try, I do try, but I will fail,
I do fail Lord,
I thank you for your grace and mercy
I thank you for your endless forgiveness
Please help me to receive this from others
More than that, O Lord
Could you help me to show these things to all?
As I have undeservedly received
May I unreservedly give.
