A Servant Surrenders


O Lord Almighty,

With love look down on me;

See I am your servant in misery.

Hear now as your servant,

I pour out my soul,

Asking forever to be in your fold.

I pray for right answers

Now here in my grief,

I, your servant, seek a renewed belief.

Please grant favor and help

Me to know Your Word

Until your servant is fully outpoured.

Take all of my body

And even my heart

So as a glad servant, your work I’ll start.
