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

Awaiting His Return

Awaiting His return

Will He find you busy
When He comes to gather His bride

Or will He call you wicked
Full of selfishness and pride

He says give unto the poor and needy
For in this, you love Him too

Will you obey His greatest command?
For it’s up to you to choose

Indeed it matters what we do
In the here and now

For will your hands be idle
Or firmly grasping at the plow?

He gives us many lessons, in His Holy Word
But they are all unavailing; if in them we do not learn

The time is near, we must prepare
Our homes, our hearts, our land

Fear shall not overtake us
We find protection by His hand
