Even though concerning rain mankind was obliviously dumb.

The perfect life and sinless performance of Jesus the Nazarene
Is what God demands of each of the souls His piercing eyes have seen.

Unable to qualify ourselves with Him to receive His Divine nod.

God qualifies the repentant, baptized believer who is willing to confess.
For it is “in Christ” the believer is seen as perfect, pure, and clean
And God can be just and justify sinners with His character untouched pristine.
