I Cannot Win God's Love

It's not based on attainments,
It's not for what I do,
God loves me just the way I am
Not based on some review.

He loves me in the process,
Not waiting in disgust
For me to get my act in gear
Or leave me in the dust.

He sees my heart's intention,
The way I've tried and failed,
He sees the heights that I have climbed,
The walls that I have scaled.

I do not have to pass some test
To win His love and grace,
It's mine, a gift, and not a loan
Performance can erase.

Right here, right now, just as I am,
His love is always mine,
In gratitude I live for Him
No need to "toe the line".
