Representative Text

1 O Lord, I humbly come to You
With this my earnest plea:
Lord, help me to become the man
That You would have me be.
Purge me from sin, cleanse me within;
And fill my life with You, O Lord,
Your love and pow’r to know.
Help me each day, along life’s way,
To keep You first in all I do,
And by Your grace, to grow.

2 O God, my Father, full of love,
Your grace abounds to me.
Lord, through my life may You alone
Be all my children see.
Purge us from sin, cleanse us within;
And fill our lives with You, O Lord,
Your love and pow’r to know.
Help us each day, along life’s way,
To keep You first in all we do,
And by Your grace, to grow.

3 And Lord, when all our days are done,
When life on earth is through,
We then will know life’s greatest joy:
Eternal life with You.
There we shall sing, loud anthems ring;
And as we gather ’round Your throne,
We’ll praise our Lord and King:
"Thanks be to God! Praise Him alone!"
But until then, O Lord, we pray,
To You the lost we’ll bring.
