I have been called, and I have been chosen–
Not because of me but because of You–
You said I had spent enough time being frozen
And set me on fire with a task to do.
And though I’m afraid, and though I’m not worthy,
Yet You are my Shield and You are my song.
My failures are simply a space for Your mercy–
In all of my weakness You show Yourself strong.
Your love overwhelms me, I’m drowning in grace;
You draw me to You and do not let me go.
You clothe me in righteousness, lift up my face,
And patiently guide me, though my pace is slow.
I can’t see the future; my back’s to the past;
But You are my vision, my guide for today.
Let me be content and let me be steadfast
Abiding in You, my Life and my Way.
