Only You


ONLY YOU
Oh Lord, My God, search my heart.
Please, search every inch, every
part.
Purge my heart Lord, of any
wicked thing.
Fill my heart with a new song to
sing.
Clean my heart Lord, make it brand
new.
Teach me to do all that, “You, ”
want me to do.
Wash my heart Lord, whiter than
snow.
Fill it with the wisdom You want
me to know.
With the Spirit, my heart, please
fill.
Mold me and use me Lord, to do
Your will.
With a clean heart Lord, all that I
do,
Will bring honor and glory to You,
“only You.”
“Only You” Lord, can change my
internal condition.
And to “only You” will I dedicate
my submission.
To follow Your lead, is how I’ll
spend my remaining days.
Now to everlasting to “only You, ”
will I sing, songs of praise.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
