If I were You, Lord, I’d be perfect.
I wouldn’t sin. I’d have no desire to.
I wouldn’t have to seek forgiveness;
I wouldn’t need it, if I were You.
If I were you, I could climb a mountain;
One that reached up to the skies.
I’d drink pure water from Heaven’s fountain and
I would see things through your eyes; if I were You.
My earthly body is far from sinless.
But, I know your Grace will see me through.
I wouldn’t need your tender mercies
Or your forgiveness, if I were You.
But, I’m not You, Lord; I’m only human.
This flesh and bones will sin, that’s true.
I’d wear a crown of pure perfection,
Of one that’s sinless, if I were You.
