Whether we realise it or not,

We are all in need of a Savior;

To redeem us from the spiritual fall

So in God’s eyes we will find favor.

Unless we’re covered by His grace

We’re detached and strangers too,

Because His wrath can only be appeased

When through Jesus we’re made new.

Our need is deeper than we imagine;

Higher than any mountain too,

Since we cannot ever save ourselves

Through our works and all we do.

Our need is supernatural

And through eternity it will last,

Since our soul can never be extinguished

Where the necessity is vast.

And it’s wider than we can comprehend

Because in the natural we’re consumed,

And too absorbed in every temporary way

When for God there is no room.

Our need is mandatory

It’s a fact we can’t ignore,

And although unbelief can be an idol

We’re God’s creation to the core.

Our greatest need is Jesus

The One who died for our sins;

To reconcile us to the Father

When our soul is saved within.
