O, Lord, my Saviour,
Come! Root out from deep within,
The pride of self that lays hidden,
Carefully ensconced behind lips that speak,
Humility that is pleasing to the ear, yet
Belies the envy that lies in the heart.

Come! Root out from deep within,
The dark hours of secret sins,
Cloaked so well in the light of day,
With the pleasing facade of a puritan, yet
Belies the immorality that lies in the heart.

Come! Help me surrender to you now,
Let your Spirit create in me,
A new and glorious life history,
Not the kind that is common to man,
But one that comes from dying to Self, yet
Living victoriously in your Will!

Come! I am willing to be willing, Lord.
