Who Am I To Say Who Deserves What?

This song is by Dogwood and appears on the album Through Thick and Thin (1997).

All the Christian songs
All sound the same
All they do is condescend
And condemn

Everything is dandy
There's nothing wrong with them
In this life
They can sin without feeling shame

That's a fallacy
'Cause we've got problems galore
The Holy Spirit brings us guilt
More and more {and more}

A never ending battle
To save souls for God
If you see a perfect person
You know they're a facade

I am by no means better than you
And I wouldn't tell you what to do
And who am I to say who deserves what?
It's not up to me to say who's right and who's not

Assailed by lies and pummeled by demands
No one looks my way or lends a helping hand
My Christian friend tells me that I'm wrong and I'll burn
I've traveled that road once and took a wrong turn

Now I'm too far from God
He won't accept me again
Can't you just hear my cries
And let me in?

Who are you to tell me if I'm right?
Should Christians walk by faith and not by sight
And who am I to say who deserves what?
I can't witness by keeping my mouth shut

How am I supposed to stay on track?
The spirit guards your life and he's always got your back
How can I receive this gift you got?
Open you heart to God and he'll give you a lot
