Lord Jesus, have Your way

by Bettina Van Vaerenbergh

Dear Lord, I trust what You're doing in me;
You are the Potter, and I'm only the clay…
Make me into the person You want me to be -
I am Yours, Lord Jesus, have Your way.

You, Lord, can do exceeding abundantly
Above all that I might think or ask…
That's reassuring, 'cause transforming me
You will find quite a daunting task!

Lord Jesus, my flaws and faults are many,
And of selfless love still so little I know…
Thank You for grace and mercies plenty;
For Your patience as You're helping me grow.

I know you will perfect what concerns me -
How, I don't always understand…
Humbly surrendered, my God, let me be;
Under Your great and loving, Almighty hand.

So I need not be ashamed at Your coming,
Lord Jesus, help me to live in such a way…
To live in brotherly love, and to keep longing -
For the dawn of that great and glorious day.
