Abandon

Can I put this world in proper place,

To seek and find and see Your face?

Can I prevail over ego and id,

And walk with God as Jesus did?

This dying  world would offer much,

But can I ever be satisfied with such?

And when I hear the mystery calling,

Can I keep myself from falling?

Can I let lose what little I know,

And follow where You would have me go?

Can I abandon all that I hold dear,

So Your voice I more clearly hear?

Help me, Lord, let go of fear,

Let Your Word my heart so sear

To renew in me the heart of stone,

With Your great love and life alone.

Forgive me, Lord, my halting way

And draw me closer day by day,

Shine through me Your Light divine

So the world can see you’re mine.

My only hope, the Love of Life

Put to rest the endless strife.

I abandon all for this one thing

So that praises I might sing.

Give to me none else but You

And into me heart healed and true,

That I might live as You did die

Humbly before the God Most High.

Can I put this world in proper place?

To seek and find and see Your face?

Can I prevail over ego and id?

And walk with God as Jesus did?
