Jesus, Lover of My Soul, stanza 3

Thou, O Christ, art all I want, more than all in Thee I find;
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, heal the sick, and lead the blind.
Just and holy is Thy Name, I am all unrighteousness;
False and full of sin I am; Thou art full of truth and grace.

This stanza is a prayer…with 2 main parts:

1. A confession that Jesus is all we want/need.

2. A petition to God to lift those who have fallen, bring joy to the weary, and impart healing and vision. Not just physical healing, but spiritual.

God is just/holy. There is no corruption in God. God is full of truth [He is THE truth] and grace. On the opposite hand, we are false/sinful/unrighteous.

This is one of the most unexplainable concepts. How can God want to have a relationship w/someone completely opposite of Him?
