Your will

❤️

I desire to do your will, my God (Psalm 40:8; NLT).

1. Father,
Please remove from me
All foolish pride and vanity;
All judging of my fellows, Lord:

Your will, my mind –
In full accord.

2. Father,
Please remove from me
All selfishness and jealousy;
All quarrelling, and hatred, Lord:

Your will, my heart –
In true accord.

3. Father,
Please remove from me
All arrogance and gluttony;
All callousness, and slander, Lord:

Your will, my soul –
In one accord.

❤️

Don’t you realise that you become the slave
of whatever you choose to obey?
(Romans 6:16; NLT).

1. May I let go of vanity,
And choose to seek your face.
May I let go of judging, Lord,
And choose, instead, your grace.

2. May I let go of bitterness,
And chose to know your balm.
May I let go of anger, Lord,
And choose, instead, your calm.

3. May I let go of jealousy,
And choose to share your bliss.
May I let go of hatred, Lord,
And choose, instead, your kiss.

4. May I let go of selfishness,
And choose to love, each day.
May I let go of evil, Lord,
And choose, instead, your way.
