Teach me the Gospel everyday


Lord forbid that I should lose the wonder of the Gospel
To see a sinner so wretched forgiven and loved so dearly
A self righteous man made aware of his filthy rags
Teach me this Gospel everyday for I forget it daily


When the Word falls from my heart
The comfort of this globe sets in so quickly
When my eyes forget to look to you daily
My ears are drawn to the noise around me easily


When daily devotion is not my normal habit
The old man of sin sanitized in Christian activity takes control
I become a very sick sinner who looks okay
I say the right words but murmur inside


Forbid that in the frontline of ministry I should forget what I need
That I should teach others the Gospel but forget my need of it
Help me to kill the man of sin, the proud man within
Give me the humility to see my great need of you daily


Teach me the wretchedness of sin even of my little sins
Give me the gratitude of the Gospel to stand amazed daily
Forbid that I should make my good works my hope
Give me the assurance of the blood that paid fully my debt


Take back this life you gave and conform it to my saviour
Though my will and desire fight you yet I know your will is best
Teach me to kill sin daily and to abound in your good works
Forbid that the comfort of this life would rob me the joy of service


Teach me the Gospel everyday for I need it like the first day
Remind me daily of my great sin even as I grow older in salvation
Forbid that a day will come to think I’ve graduated from this need
Peg my heart to your Word to see my great Saviour everyday

  1. Ooh I am moved by the words “When my eyes forget to look to you daily
    My ears are drawn to the noise around me easily”…..
    it makes me know that the presence of sin is in me ..meaning forgetting that I need the gospel and it’s others who need it ..will make me proud and I will definitely fall …..
