I may not have the answer to your question
I may not know the problems you possess
I may not be a man who understands you
I may not fulfill the standard I confess.
I may not measure to the yardstick of the Bible
I may not be a righteous man all the day
I may not think the thoughts that I ought to
I may not utter good speech in all I say.

For the answer I can't give you, Jesus has it
For your problem I don't know, Jesus sees
For my lack of understanding, Jesus has been there
For the standard I can't fulfill, Jesus frees.
For full measure of the Bible, Jesus is this
For the righteousness I need, Jesus lives,
For my mind to be renewed, is Jesus thinking
For my tongue to speak with grace, Jesus gives.

Ephesians 4:20-32
