A Prayer.

Scenes of You come rushing through

Oh Lord
You searched me and you know me
When I lie down and when I rise
You know my heart
You know my jealousy and my pride
My ingratitude and impatience
My lust and my greed
You hear my curses cast
On those You’ve called ‘Beloved’
You’ve seen both my faces
Even when they flash moments apart
You’ve seen me drunk and stupid
You’ve known me brash and foolish
You’ve tolerated, proud and haughty
And guarded my wanton heart

Still I am persuaded
That should I be alone on earth
The cross would be mine
That if mine were the only debt owed
Your blood would ever flow

Such love is too wonderful for me
That you would die for my freedom
Rise the victor
Defeat my captor
Stay as Advisor
To empower and lead
That we may be together again
Such love is too wonderful for me

Please change my heart to reflect
The selfless heart
The irresistible love
The unquenchable compassion
Of Your life in me.
