Representative Text

1 Lord, I come now before You, to lay my life at Your feet.
Sweep now over my spirit, and make me complete.
Lord, please give me a new heart, and free me from my sin.
I want to be holy, and wholly pure within.

2 Lord, please quiet my spirit, that I may hear when You call.
Free me from earthly passions, and don’t let me fall.
Fill me full with Your presence; surround me with Your love.
Lord, I want to know You, and seek things only above.

3 Teach me, Lord, to be faithful, Your Word and will to obey.
Help me follow You only, and never to stray.
Lord, please make me Your servant, and fill me with Your grace.
I want to live for You, both now and then, face to face.
