.

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.

Beauty and Joy

O the beauty of the breaking dawn

And the beauty of the setting sun

And the beauty of the endless sea

But the greater beauty of Jesus.

.

There are joys on earth of family and friend

And the joy of heaven knows no end

But the joys of Jesus, both here are there

Far surpass the joys of either.

.

Lord, I thank You now for setting me free

And I thank You now for welcoming me

For the sweet delight of knowing You

Is the greatest joy of my life.
