Lord, if I ever doubt your love for me,
remind me of how I used to be.
Take me back to when we first began,
and show me the person I was back then.
Year by year as I grow in your grace,
I sometimes forget the pains you erased.
Don’t let me complain about things I go through,
but look at the way you’re making me new.
Would you put a watchman before my mind
to remind me life’s trials are your design.
Don’t let me pretend that I love you so;
search my heart oh Lord…I want to know.
So I can worship you with a heart that is right
and truly say you are my delight.
Start a fire down in my soul.
Lord, hold me close…don’t let me go.
I want my life to count for you.
Help me to finish what you’ve called me to do.
I know the cross will be my friend.
This life I’m living one day will end.
Then all I could be will be gone for evermore.
Lord, help me today before I reach that shore.
