Here I Am -- Again!

I lay myself down, again, Lord,
At the foot of your cross.
Help me to see the blessing
in keeping myself in Your place.

I live in a world filled with sin,
and I try so hard to keep myself
free of its binding ropes...
but I fail, again and again.

I forget my place at the cross
and rise up in disgust,
ready to fight and die
-- then I am reminded
the place I belong
is on my knees
at Your feet.

So here I am, again, Lord,
Trying once more to forget myself
and let You work through me.

Speak clearly, Lord,
so there is no doubt
which way You want me to go.

Be my God,
And help me to be Your child.
