To You From Me

 

Hide me, heal me, love me, spare me Lord God I beg Thee!

Just come and take me far away from the world’s crushing reach

Hold me, cherish me, teach me, lead me, my God I’m blind without Thee

The way I let my pride strangle me makes me feel like I’m on a choke-chain leash

Lift me, touch me, surround me, breathe Your Life into me, please Lord hear me!

My self-respect has been sucked dry like I’ve been dwelling with a leach

Pursue me, take me, shape me, wake me up from this deep sleep and let me see Thee

And let everything in me realize that little ol’ me is loved by a King

Mend me, use me, examine me, have mercy on me for the crimes I’ve committed against Thee

Let me see what Your eyes see in me instead of what this slaughter-house world wants me to be

Rescue me, talk to me, romance me, and set me free from the fears swelling within me

I want to be everything to You like You have always been for me…

Save me, pour into me, scold me if need be, but Lord change me and make me more like Thee

I want everyone to see the forgiveness in You when they look at the failures me

 

With love,

Little ol’ me
