.

Holy Spirit, work within me,
Prideful, selfish as I am
Full of broken, vain ambition
Full of every rebel plan
Let the love and grace of Jesus
Be my focus, be my goal
Burn within me, cleanse me, change me,
Make me holy, make me whole.

.

You are light and truth and beauty
Every good and noble dream
But you once walked earth among us
Tempted, tested as I am.
I surrender, I surrender
Be my beacon burning bright
Live within me, cleanse me, change me,
Be my Master, be my light!

.

Holy Spirit, work within me,
Let the love of Christ shine through
Sweeten every ugly impulse
Till in me the world sees you.
Let your fragrance, let your beauty,
Let your grace flow from my soul
Burn within me, cleanse me, change me,
Make me holy, make me whole.
