My Heart's Desire
Lord, let my love go to Your people
Let my heart break for the lost
Let me give my life in service
For the message of the cross.
Let me go to all the nations
Or let me serve You here at home
For wherever You will lead me
Let me kneel before Your throne.
Let me see others as You see them
Let me love them as You do
Let my heart be burdened greatly
To bring lost children home to You.
Let me pour my heart out to You
Let me petition You each day
Let Your love flow right through me
Bowing before You as I pray.
Let me carry Your Word to others
As You guide me by Your hand
Let me boldly speak Your wonders
Lord, open hearts to understand.
Give me wisdom, give me courage
Let me be part of Your plan
Let me always persevere
In this grace in which I stand.
Lord, as You go before me
Let my feet so gladly follow
Let me always share Your mercies
To a world lost and hollow.
Let me carry forth this good news
Lord, and set the captives free
Let me serve You with my whole heart
As I give myself to Thee.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;
to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith:
as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
