God, Take Control

God, take control from this day forth
Of me and all I own,
My triumphs and my failures,
Which belong to Thee alone.

Rid me of all delusions,
That I am brave and strong,
Show me how much I need You
To help me get along.

God, take control of everything
That has to do with me,
Restore the sight within my soul,
That I may truly see.

Mend what I have broken
And cannot now repair,
And when my heart feels empty,
Remind me You are there.

God, take control, when things don’t work,
The times I get my way,
You always know what’s best for me
Through every night and day.

And just because of all the love
Within my heart for Thee,
I humbly pray you’ll always be …
Responsible for me!

Used with Permission

The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Psalms 34:18
