May I praise your name,
Serving in all I do;
Then I will see your face, at last,
For I belong to you.
May I face each day
Bearing my cross anew;
Then I will share your joy, at last,
For I am part of you.
May I hear your voice
Teaching me all that’s true;
Then we will reunite, at last,
For I am one with you.
1. You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him (Luke 4:8; NLT).
Now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face (1 Corinthians 13:12; NRSV).
You and I both belong to God (Job 33:6; NLT).
2. If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me (Luke 9:23; NLT).
Share your master’s joy (Matthew 25:21; CSB).
Don’t you know that your bodies are a part of Christ’s body? (1 Corinthians 6:15; CSB).
3. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth (John 14:17; NLT).
Then the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NLT).
I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one (John 17:21; NLT).
The person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him (1 Corinthians 6:17; NLT).
