Befitted...



 

A cup of water given in Your name is all You ask
Lord Jesus, make me willing and befit me for the task
For it’s not what I do Jesus, but what You do through me
As stubborn will releases pride for love’s humility

Lord Jesus, you behold me not without but from within
The flesh is sordid vanity prone to thought’s lowest sin
But Lord, when I surrender giving You holy control
The glory of love’s splendor makes the lowly beautiful

Lord, let me never magnify my foolish, errant will
But Jesus, teach me to rely on You as You fulfill
Your work through me and I return my offering thankfully
A vessel for Your service as You shine Your light through me
