7in7-Day5

This song stems from this last verse of a hymn called "Come Thou Fount"

"O to grace how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be
let thy goodness like a fetter bind my wondering heart to thee
I'm prone to wonder Lord I feel it, prone to leave the God I love
here's my heart Lord take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above"

I meditated on those thoughts for a while, and I'm thankful that God gave me this song for day 5. I believe, for the Christian, this is the cry of their heart often times more than not. 

"In Need of Grace (constantly)"

I need Your grace
clasp this heart
wondering often far from You  

My selfishness
displays my need
desperately I long for change

grant me trust when my faith is frail 
give me fight when my flesh is weak
your the strength of my heart and my portion forever
I'm in need of grace constantly 

I need Your hand
uproot my pride
perfectly prune with love 

my fear is great
remind my soul
faithfully Your hold is strong 

grant me trust when my faith is frail 
give me fight when my flesh is weak
Your the strength of my heart and my portion forever

grant me trust when my faith is frail 
give me fight when my flesh is weak
Your the strength of my heart and my portion forever
I'm in need of grace constantly 

 

Nothin' but love,

Jimmy
