Empty me

 

Empty me, Father,
And fill me with Christ,

So I will be ready
For each sacrifice.

Empty me, Father,
And fill me with prayer,

So I will be ready  
To give, and to care.

Empty me, Father,
And fill me with love,

So I will be ready 
For heaven above.

Empty me, Father,
And fill me with grace, 

So I will be ready
To gaze on your face.
