THE GIFT
September 1, 2003


Help me see my heart, O Lord
For what it really is
Let me see the pain I still let live there
And the fear that keeps me in

Help me see your grace, O Lord
My undeserved gift from you
Let me feel the freedom that is bought and paid
And my fear that keeps it hidden

Until I accept the gift
Until I realize it is paid in full
I will never be the man you've designed me to be
Help me be that man

Help me spread your word, O Lord
To everyone I see
Let them see your life shine through
As I die to myself and live for you

Until I know the gift is mine
Until I count the cost
I will never be the man you've designed me to be
Help me be that man
