July 1987

 

oh Lord!

you have clothed me

in you cloak of righteousness

you have bought for me

a brand new start

you gave your life

to save me from my sin

 

Lord I love you

how I long to serve you

I want to give you me

whatever that is worth

my life, oh Lord

I want to give to you

 

But Lord

inside me is a demon

struggling to overcome

and he often does

I love you Lord

yet I feed the demon

his pleasures

though temporary

feel good

 

Only you can change my heart

I need you to

for I alone

can do no good

please Lord

change this heart

make it yours

in you alone

do I desire to live

 

Forgive me Lord

redeem me

let me claim for good

the gift you died to give
