take from me Lord

the things that aren’t of you

keep me close only to you

take out the idols of my life


take away from my sight

my thoughts, my lips

the things that block the way

that are of the world and not you


help me resist those things

only you and I know of

be with me as the stories

steal away my soul


the stories of the world

immersed in the culture

that captivate my heart

making me slave once more to sin


help me remember

who you are and who I am in you

the weak one, the broken

help me seek you once more
