|1- Lord You know that,
things can distract,
Deceitful lusts can attract;
Purify my heart, and cleanse my thought
Don't allow Satan to have a part.
R- Purify me, purify me (2)
Lord, I love You, I adore You,
And I know how You love me.
2- Lord You know me, weak and lowly,
Yet full of pride and vain glory,
You're my resort, my peaceful port,
And to Your mercies I flee.
3- Protect my ears, preserve my eyes,
Guide me as I go on weary roads.
I'll watch Your words, follow Your commands,
Because Your love guides and safeguards.
4- Lord You know how, I feel the blame,
The sense of guilt and painful shame.
Pluck all the weeds, protect the seeds
Of my faith in Your Holy Name.
5- I hurt You when I go too far
To gratify my sick pleasures.
When I defile, You reconcile
And bring me back to the Father's home.
6- It hurts me to quit glory,
And go to follow the enemy.
To You I pray, to You I cry,
Kindly attend to my plea.
7- Lord I am blessed, my humble nest,
Is a place where You like to rest.
Dwell in my heart, do not depart.
I'm Yours my most honored guest.
