Redeem

Psalm 130
(paraphrased)
Out of the depths I cry
Hear my voice Adonai
For mercy I cry
Hear and attend Adonai
With a record of sin
No one could ever win
Before God who could stand
There’d be no one in the land
But God does forgive
Enables us to live
God’s Word is clear
It is God we must fear
On the Lord I wait
He is never late
In His Word is hope
Enables one to cope
It is the soul
God can make whole
Put your hope in the Lord
Do this now in one accord
With Adonai is unfailing love
Full redemption from above
He will redeem from sin
And cleanse deep within

Lead

Oh God, hear my cry
It is on You I rely
Listen to my prayer
I know that You care
I call out to You
You are the only One who
Can lead me to the Rock
(I am part of the flock)
The Rock is higher than I
I call to You Adonai
You have been my refuge
Your protection is huge
A strong tower against my foe
Safety is in You, this I know
I long to dwell with You forever
Be apart from You never
There is shelter under Your wings
Peace and safety it brings
My vows You have heard
And listened to my every word
I will forever fear Your Name
And give You glory, honor, fame

My Prayer

Lord, in You I need to abide
Remove every ounce of pride
In me, do not let it reside
Neither do I want it to hide
It’s power must be denied
I need Your help for I’ve tried
Many a nights I have cried
I need humility on my side
~~~
Today, this is what I decide
I say to you unwanted pride
Your ways I have now denied
All you have done is lied
Your ways in me now fried
In me they cannot reside
For I will not let them abide
I have a humble spirit inside
