Unfairness

I got the inspiration to write this song from a good friend’s journal entry. We cry and cry about things being unfair and life being unfair. Truth is we should be THANKFUL for unfairness! If things were fair then Jesus would not have taken our place on the Cross. There was absolutely nothing fair about that! So maybe when we are tempted to say life isn’t fair or a situation isn’t fair we should think of Christ and his sacrifice for us. For if things were fair we would not be here. Be thankful for unfairness.

Unfairness

Your love it rescues
You reached down
And lifted us from the fall
And all humanity came to life

With the Cross
You reached down
And picked us up from the fall
What was fair about
The sacrifice of Innocence?
God showed unfairness to One
To show mercy to all
Love is unfair
But Love gave up Himself
To rescue us from desperation

Your love it beckons
You call to us
And make us Sons of God
Our hearts are alive

With the Cross
You reached down
And picked us up from the fall
What was fair about
The sacrifice of Innocence?
God showed unfairness to One
To show mercy to all
Love is unfair
But Love gave up Himself
To rescue us from desperation

No greater act of kindness exists
Your mercy is unending, forever matchless
You are forever matchless!
Your love is fulfilling, forever matchless
You are forever matchless!
Forever matchless!
