I bless you for your call to yourself,
that you chose me and delivered me,
giving your life to purchase mine
and calling me to surrender
all to you,
into your perfect hands.
Your wooing has won my trust
again and again,
that you are good,
your lovingkindness goes before me,
pursues me, hems me in,
and your discipline brings forth fruit.
I bless you for the crushing and breaking,
you do not ask me to follow
where you haven’t gone before,
and I thank you that you do what I can’t do for myself,
and pour out grace for my heart to say yes to you.
I cherish your spirit within me,
your voice like waters that speaks and comforts,
and I will surrender, submit, and follow you,
and be blessed all my days.
I love you and praise you O Lord.
