I thank you for your love,
sending your Son down,
He came to save the world,
dying for for all our sins,
not condemn it,
to give life forever.
I praise you that you have always, only
drawn me by love
by your Spirit,
and I’m grateful for your words,
so different from the accusations of the enemy
and my own self condemnation.
Your words are life-giving, gentle, and kind,
wise, instructive, and gracious,
bringing peace and comfort,
merciful refreshing and restoration.
Cleanse me once more with your Word,
put a burning coal upon my lips
that my guilt would be taken away
and my sin atoned for.
Anoint me with a fresh grace
to speak words that bring healing and life
from a gentle heart and soothing tongue,
spreading wisdom and knowledge of you,
lifting up prayers that you hear and delight in.
Give me a willing heart to learn from your Son
gentle and humble in heart.
Thank you for your love,
and life eternal in you.
