God, You Owe Me…

(A song of pride from one who believes in performance.)


God, you owe me; I’ve been good. Check the record and you’ll see.

I’ve been faithful, as I should. Not like other guys to me.


I don’t hang with evil folks. At the church is where I’m found.

Not for me are dirty jokes, but your praises, sung out loud.


When the day of judgment comes,  save me as you roust the bums.

At your side I will  be found; standing tall on level ground.

  1. “All our righteousnesses are filthy rags.” We don’t have a God who owes us anything. We owe Him for sending Jesus. Self- righteous Dave. Check with your wife before sending this. Daisy


  2. I agree with you theologically. ABSOLUTELY agree. But the Psalm reads quite differently, and I think I may have distilled its essence.
