Humble Prayer

Father hear me now when I am humbled 
I fear that I will soon forget 
Now I have no strength to stand and stumble 
I have no wish to leave You yet 

O Holy Father hear me now 
When flesh is strong and spirit weak 
Please break my back if I won't bow 
Won't You have Your way with me? 

Father hear me now when I am humbled 
When I am bent with holy shame 
All the lies that I believed have crumbled 
The blood of Christ my only claim 

I cannot my trust my own designs 
My heart is prone to disobey 
So listen Lord while there is time 
Chain me fast if I won't stay 
Take my life and have Your way 

Please hear me Lord this blessed hour 
When sin has loosed it's hold on me 
Thy mercy is a mighty tower 
So why should I not trust in Thee? 
Father, have Your way with me
