Be the Lord of my Heart


We should watch the things that put us to tears
The anticipation that gives us sleepless nights
The dreams that catch us in broad daylight
They are our greatest worries or treasures
These indeed are our truest convictions


The headlines that captivate us the most
The things we admire and get jealous over
That which makes our knees to weaken
They say a lot about what we value in life
And our faith must start by captivating such


These are the songs we sing to our hearts
The teachings that our minds attend
Our hands cling to such than anything else
But such treasures or idols must first bow
Bow to the one who must own our hearts


Whatever holds our hearts owns our convictions
In there belongs true love, beauty and treasure
But also the idols of money, sex and power
The things we want and what we fear most
If Jesus be Lord of all he must conquer here


Lord help me to bow down my joys and fears
To let you be my greatest love and treasure
Help me to cast down my precious idols
Own my fears and liberate me to serve you
Be the Lord of my heart and with it everything
