But God Chose

I am not wise
By human standards
Not influential
No noble birth
I stand before you
With fear and trembling
I am weak
With non-persuasive words

But You chose
The foolish things of this world
And You chose
The weak in this world, too
And You chose
The lowly things, discarded
And You chose
To call me near to You

Will You choose me
To shame the wise man
Will You choose me
To shame the strong
Will You choose me
To boast before You
Boast of all
The mighty things You’ve done!

‘Cause without Your Spirit
I have no message
Without Your leading
I have no song
Without Your guidance
My words are worthless
Without Your power
I am not strong

Will You choose me
To shame the wise man
Will You choose me
To shame the strong
Will You choose me
To boast before You
Boast of all
The mighty things You’ve done!

And will God choose you
To shame the wise man
Will God choose you
To shame the strong
Will God choose you
To boast before Him
Boast of all
The mighty things He’s done!

Let’s boast of all
The mighty things He’s done!

Bridge:
He is our righteousness
He is our holiness
He paid the debt
For young and old
He died upon the cross
To save a world that’s lost
We stand and boast
It must be told!
It must be told!

Will God choose us
To shame the wise man
Will God choose us
To shame the strong
Will God choose us
To boast before Him
Boast of all
The mighty things He’s done!

Let’s boast of all
The mighty things He’s done!

Let’s boast of all
The mighty things He’s done!

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used offensively to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems/song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website may always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
