Look at Me Lord


Look at me Lord as I pray
(Image courtesy of http://gr8trimpact.com)

Look at me Lord;
I’m down on my knees.
I’ve been here before…
    Lord, hear my plea.
Times are hard,
but I’ll never give up
Touch me Lord…
please fill my cup.

Teach me the words…
    of the Apostle’s Creed
Remind me again,
it’s You that I need
The light in me…
    must shine so bright.
Illumine me Lord…
    You are The Light.

I once was blind,
but now I see.
Are not mere words…
    to those set free.
Free to walk,
in the newness of life.
You transformed me...
    from darkness to light.

I’ve risen with Christ…
    who rose from the dead.
The church is the body…
    He is the head.
So look at me Lord,
pour out your grace.
Purge me with hyssop...
    prostrate on my face.

Lying before…
    Your Heavenly Throne.
My soul thirsts for You,
cause heaven's my home.
I want to go home,
but I need to stay.
There’s work to be done...
    I’m the Potter’s clay.

So look at me Lord…
    it's here where I stand.
I love you Lord Jesus…
    my life’s in Your hands.
Yes, look at me Lord…
    You’ve blessed my life.
I’m ready to labor…
    the harvest is ripe.
