Flow In, My God

Representative Text

1 I lift the floodgate of my soul,
O God, thou boundless sea,
And feel thy cleansing billows roll
In glory over me.

Flow in, thou mighty sea of love,
Thro' all my nature roll;
With tides of power,
This gracious hour,
Submerge my longing soul.

2 O'er all the rocks of unbelief,
The burning sands of sin,
O'er selfishness, and fear, and grief,
Flow in, my God, flow in! [Chorus]

3 Now may I lose myself in thee,
Now may I die to sin;
Thou art my all eternally,
Flow in, my God, flow in! [Chorus]
