Renew my mind, it always lets me down
I yearn for You. I do not seek a crown
My strength is but a fantasy of mine
I think I stand but then step out of line.
Renew my heart; I listen but do not hear
You are my hope as I long for timeless spheres
What is Your plan to lift me from this mire?
I cannot reach the heights that I aspire.
I’ll just let go. Your Word is in my heart
Keep whispering that we will never part
I love You, Lord yet I’m not satisfied
That I’ll be holy or ever be Your bride.
Perfection still a dream that’s lost to me
Even as I weep at the foot of
Renew my mind, my actions then will change
I need Your power; be never out of range.
