A Cry for Growth


Prone to wander and to stray,
Prone to slowly drift away.
Though my heart so longs to be
Nearer, Oh, my God, to Thee.
So foolish and unwise am I,
Oh, Saviour, do not pass me by!

Please guide me home
And wash me clean
Of sins that only You have seen.
And though I stumble and fail again,
Please let Your grace to me extend.

Lead me on to higher ground,
For through Your love,
I'm heaven bound.
Please help me now oh, Lord, I pray,
To walk your perfect, narrow way.

And when at last, Your face I see,
May the past hold no regrets for me.
May I give my all,
Surrender to You,
And trust that you will see me through.

I know Your love will hold me fast,
For on You all my cares I'll cast.
I love You, Lord, and though I'm weak,
In You I find the strength I seek.

I praise Your name for all You've done,
For in Your Cross my victory is won.
And when I stand before the Son,
I pray I'll hear, "My child, well done."
