I’m Not, He Is

I’m not holy
I can say things
That sound that way,
But doing things right
Doesn’t make me righteous
That’s all Jesus
All the holiness I have
Comes from God 
Living in me
Without Him there,
I lose all credibility 
But with God in me
I can speak with authority
That is not my own
All the things I’m not
God is and makes me
I’m not good for much
Apart from the One
Who created me
And continues to shape me
As I walk through life
With God shining out of me
