Not In Me (New Song)

Not In Me is a new hymn by Eric Schumacher and David L. Ward that explores what it might have sounded like if the Pharisee in Luke 18 had chosen to repent rather than relying on his self-righteousness.

Not In Me
No list of sins I have not done,
No list of virtues I pursue,
No list of those I am not like
Can earn myself a place with You.
O God! Be merciful to me.
I am a sinner through and through.
My only hope of righteousness
Is not in me, but only You.

No humble dress, no fervent prayer,
No lifted hands, no tearful songs,
No recitation of the truth,
Can justify a single wrong.
My righteousness is Jesus’ life.
My debt was paid by Jesus’ death.
My weary load was borne by Him,
And He alone can give me rest.

No separation from the world,
No work I do, no gift I give
Can cleanse my conscience, cleanse my hands,
I can not cause my soul to live.
But Jesus died and rose again.
The pow’r of death is over-thrown!
My God is merciful to me,
And merciful in Christ alone.

My righteousness is Jesus’ life.
My debt was paid by Jesus’ death.
My weary load was borne by Him,
And He alone can give me rest,
And He alone can give me rest.
