Rewards Were There For Me To Claim


''Rewards Were There For Me To Claim''

Based on I Corinthians 3:10-15

Words and Music Written By Daryl Stout

1. Rewards were there for me to claim...but, when I lived in sin and shame;
Bringing reproach to Jesus' Name...I lost them...yes...I'm to blame.

2. Before I met Him, life was controlled by sin, and its deadly hold.
Living for self, and the world's gold...my heart toward Him was cold.

3. Then, I realized one precious day...Jesus, The Truth, The Life, The Way.
On Calvary's Cross, The Price He Paid...His Blood Spilled There...Salvation Gained.

4. A humbled sinner, down on my knees...I prayed ''Dear Jesus...save my soul, please''.
''Forgive the way, I've lived toward thee''...He washed me clean...and set me free.

5. Though all my sins, forgiven there...I had sins nature...and its cares.
As among wheat...there were tares...to mar fellowship with Him so fair.

6. The things that I know I should do...are pushed aside by sin's taboos.
Convicted by His Spirit True...to forsake and run...from sins' vice-like screw.

7. And when life on Earth is done...in Death or Rapture...The Victory Won.
My life and works judged by Christ, God's Son...motives and deeds in front of everyone.

8. The Judgment Seat Of Christ awaits...to review each saints' lifes' days.
How we served Him...counting the cost...or did we live...just like the lost??

9. Works for His Glory...all to behold...Precious stones, silver, and gold.
Works In The Flesh, and sins desires...Wood, hay, and stubble...destroyed by fire.

10. Saved not through works, but by His Grace...To be with Him...forever praise.
Crowns Of Glory...and not of pain...Laid There...Worthy Him That Was Slain.

11. Rewards were there for me to claim...but, when I lived in sin and shame;
Bringing reproach to Jesus' Name...I lost them...yes...I'm to blame.
