God's people ignoring his will
when enemies came and brought sweat and blood, discomfort
they'd turn, suddenly helpless children,
to their patient Keeper.
He'd give rest and in their rest
they'd return to evil and former ignorance.
Ever faithful, He'd save them but did He delight in them?
I doubt it.
I want a heart that longs for more than just deliverance
one that aches to do His will.
It feels like an impossible thing to have,
wrestling this heart into submission
is an effort that I can't sustain.
cleanse me, create me anew
give me a spirit that is true
please don't send me away
but let your Spirit stay
my sacrifice in part
will be a broken heart
and from the ashes I will rise;
a contrite spirit you will not despise*
