Dear Lord and Savior, hear my plea.
It's all of you and not of me.
Forgive me for the wrong I've done
and all my past I can't outrun.
Until I learn, do what it takes
to chasten me for my mistakes.
Please humble me so I can't brag,
for I am just one filthy rag.
Please help the ones I've sinned against.
I'll make amends. I'll recompense.
You love the world so I can live.
I thank you Lord that You forgive.
Please help me not to money love,
but focus there on You above.
Please give me faith that's ever true.
Please help me love forever You.
Please give me strength to do your will
and heed Your Word 'til breath is still.
Please help the sick and heal the lame.
I pray this all in Jesus' name.
