Holiness

Eternal womb of growth
Prepare me for eternal birth.
Fortify me with God’s word.
Let my humble prayer be heard.

Here I am!

A broken soul that Jesus bought,
Heal my wounds; bend my mind to righteous thought.
I lift my arms to You, let praise begin!
I lift my lips, let song begin!

Can you hear me?

Let love embrace me.
Let grace replace me.
Lift me out of this darkness I have been in,
Let only your glory reside within.

I need you.

Prepare me Father, nurture my soul
That I may soon be whole,
That I may find endless rest,
And dwell forever in your holiness.
