13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
1 Timothy 1:13-14 KJV
Your ignorance is no excuse to sin
But is instead the well from which sin springs.
Before you made the choice and let Christ in
You drank the darkness, thought it everything.
You fled from all conviction like a thief;
The gospel words you heard picked up the chase,
And though your ignorance fed unbelief
The love of God was patient with His grace.
No matter who you were or what you did,
When you came to the cross, surrendered all,
The mercy of the Lord your sins did rid;
Abundant faith and love in Him sprang tall.
Your neighbor might be ignorant in sin.
Go share the gospel now; let it begin.
