Once again pondering life...
And again, the depths of me must cry out
"My Lord, You are the ONLY One!
Let Your will in my life be done;
every moment of the day
I submit unto Your way!
My Lord, I lay myself aside.
Let all my 'self,' Lord, be denied
and lead my steps unto Your way;
I give myself to You this day!
I give unto You everything.
Show me those things to which I cling
so I'll release them, fast and free!
Hear, oh Lord, mine humble plea!
I do not want a thing to be
in my life that would hinder me
from receiving all that's mine
from my Risen Lord divine!
I give myself to You, indeed;
and, as I do, my Lord, I'm freed
from all the bondage of this world!
Asunder have my chains been hurled!
The blessings in You, Lord, to be:
peace and love and victory,
salvation, hope, forgiveness, joy...
in You, Lord, freely I enjoy!
Jesus Christ--the only One,
the King of kings, God's own Son!
Submission unto You fore'er--
my risen Lord, this is my prayer!"
I cannot live without Jesus. I do not even want to try! He is so much an integral part of all that I do. He loves me, He blesses me, He corrects me, He disciplines me...all because He cares! I hope that the way I feel about Him can be seen, felt and heard in the words that come from within!
