O LORD, WITHIN MY SOUL

O Lord, within my soul,
I long for purity,
To be complete and whole
Alone through Thee.
 

Refrain

There is no other hope,
There is no other plea;
Salvation, full salvation free,
Must come alone through Thee.

 

I bend before Thy cross,
And know my heart can be
Cleansed from its sin and dross
Alone through Thee.

Refrain

 

I pray at Thy dear feet,
Salvation full entreat,
And want to feel my love
In Thee complete.
 

Refrain

My faith Thy Word believes,
The promise made to me,
And perfect peace receives
Alone through Thee.

Refrain

Who Can Say ?
 
 
What are my words if not spoken in prayer
Or shared with another without
Love and care?
 
What are my thoughts if not focused on you, Lord?
They are but tainted notions that shall perish by
Your Holy Sword.
 
What is my heart if filled with pure envy
Instead of transformed with faith,
Hope and charity?
 
May I speak only words of gold
Heaven sent words that are eternal-
For the precious young and old.
 
May I think with a renewed mind
So I can help others how not to be
Left behind.
 
 
My soul would stay lost
Unless restored by our Shepherd
and made whole.
 
May my heart be like an open book
So others can find the pure part
Being that of Lord Jesus
 Giver of new life
And a joyful
right start.
