Why Have You Chosen Me?

Why have You chosen me out of millions Your child to be?
You know all the wrongs that I've done...

Oh, how could You pardon me, forgive my iniquities
to save me, give Jesus Your Son

But Lord, help me be what You want me to be
Your Word I will strive to obey

My life I now give, for You I will live
and walk by Your side all the way

I am amazed to know that our God's so great could love me so
He's willing and wanting to bless

His love is so wonderful, His mercy's so bountiful
I can't understand it, I confess

But Lord, help me be what You want me to be
Your Word I will strive to obey

My life I now give, for You I will live
and walk by Your side all the way

Gue berterima kasih sama penulis lagu ini. Jujur, lagu ini merepresentasikan pertanyaan-pertanyaan dalam batin: kenapa sih Tuhan mau pilih gue? Kenapa Tuhan masih mau pakai gue untuk ngerjain pekerjaan-pekerjaan Dia yang gue sendiri ngerasa gak layak ngerjainnya?

Kenapa gue jadi salah satu orang yang Dia pilih ketika Dia hadir ke dunia dalam momen Natal seperti sekarang ini? Kenapa? Emang gue layak dapet pengampunan itu? Emang gue layak dapet keselamatan itu? Dengan sebegitu banyaknya kejatuhan-kejatuhan dan dosa-dosa gue yang...even gue gak bisa ceritain ke siapapun saking gue sendiri ngerasa kotor banget, tapi kenapa Tuhan gak pernah capek menyentuh hati gue dan ngingetin gue bahwa Dia sayang sama gue?

Just...why have You chosen me, Lord? Just why? Why me?
