Not My Own

Not My Own – 

Here am I, send me
An empty vessel,
Surrendered knee

To use for your purpose & your plan
No selfish desires, no scheme of man

Everything I have belongs to you,
I desire nothing but your will to do

All that I am and all I want to be
You accomplished upon that tree

As blood ran down your sinless face
You suffered and died to take my place

So…

May you be glorified in me
I pray it’s only you they see

My life is yours, please have your way
No matter what the world may say

I yearn to see the way you do
To love like you, no matter who

To believe, to pray, to forgive, to wail
Knowing without your Holy Spirit, I will fail

My life on earth is not my own
I’ve exchanged it for a heavenly home

Because you died so I may live
My breath, my all…to you I give
