words and music by Buddy Greene

I'm a pharisee in recovery
With new eyes I can see a big sinner in me
But it's the way of my human heart
To confess other people's sin,
Reluctant to admit my part or the deeper problem within.
But, thank God, He won't let me be, or remain in my hypocrisy
Sooner or later I'll be on my knees
honest to God a recovering Pharisee

I'm a sinner and a saint simultaneously
I'm not what I was or what I'm goin' to be
Still I've got that ol' tendency to be all a wicked man can be
It takes more than knowin' right from wrong
It takes more than singin' gospel songs
It takes the life of the Great I Am to produce any good in me
He's the Vine I'm the branch and I'm learnin’ to be
Honest to God, a recovering Pharisee

I need the God of all grace each and every day
If I'm to run his race if I'm to walk in His way
I don't have to be a slave to sin I don't have to let the devil win
Cause the Son of God lives in me and He promises to set me free
So, Jesus, help my unbelief so I can follow you faithfully
You're the Shepherd I'm the sheep and you're helpin' me be
Honest to God, a recovering Pharisee
