O dear Lord, deliver me; from myself; draw me closer, my Lord. What a lovely hymn; the words really fit:
I praise and love You my heavenly Father. Amen.
San Francisco, California, United States
O Lord! My service is failure full and weak, I confess shamefully. May Your cross deepen its work within me and burning me into ashes so that the Holy Spirit will fill me each day more than before.
Oh may the Lord fill me with His Spirit until am one with Him in reality.
Lord, thank You for each revelation on ‘the self’ in Your economy.
From the deepest part of our being, we praise You for the visions and enlightenments on ‘the self’ given from You to each one of us in the Body, which are evermore needed for “the death operating in us”(2 Cor. 4:12).

God's forgiveness "married" David's transgression and repentance, and this marriage brought forth the man named Solomon, who built the temple of God; Solomon is a type of Christ and of those who experience Christ to be one with them.
Roswell, NM, United States
Oh from myself deliver, from all its misery. Lord, this is my earnest plea,
that with Thy Spirit You can fill me. For the building up of Your Body.
Pleasant Hill, CA, United States
What a sweet hymn. Oh the height and depth of His riches we can experience when singing with grace in our hearts to Him...Lord may this become the reality in every member of Your Body for Your building, Bride, and expression. Praise our sweet Beloved.
Dublin, CA, United States
Only in self you will experience misery. The cross is not suffering, the suffering can be felt by an active self, strong self, and good willed self. Therefore, we need to be delivered from self. Once we're emptied, we can be filled with God!
Pittsburgh, PA, U.S.A.
Even "the self" frustrates God's good will and intention over and over again, however with this hymn I can always tell the Lord, "oh, from myself deliver from all its misery; so I can be forever completely filled with Thee."
