I’ve worshiped idle gods and men,
oh, how foolish I have been,
to throw away wasted years.
Now, I look to You through tears.

I stand before You, vulnerable,
stripped naked, and ashamed.
Now, it’s only Your name I proclaim.

I struggle with faith day-to-day.
You’re the only one true way.
Hold me steadfast to this path,
forgiving me of my past.

I’m nothing but Your humble servant.
I fall to You, upon bended knee,
Your shining grace, brilliant to see.

I don’t feel worry, pain, or strife,
for the first time in my life.
My heart and mind are at ease.
Only Your love can bring such peace.
