O Lord, You Know What’s in My Heart

1
O Lord, You know what’s in my heart,
Desires concealed in my inward parts;
Though “I am Yours” my mouth’s confessed,
By many loves my heart’s possessed.
O Lord, my desp’rate cry now heed—
Regain my heart! Your help I need!
O’erturn, expose what weighs me down,
That in these things I would not drown.
2
How blind I’ve been, how filled with pride,
Believing in the things of sight,
In things uncertain placing hope,
And not in Him who all upholds.
Oh, turn my heart from meaner things;
Forgive me, Lord, for wavering.
I must pursue the One who’s real;
The false, release; no more deceived!
3
Cause me, dear Lord, to truly see—
I’m Yours; a man of God indeed.
Your life and nature I, too, share;
To flee earth’s snares, my earnest pray’r.
My heart, dear Lord, I yield anew
To only love, lay hold on You.
With cords of man, with bands of love,
Lord, keep me faithful till You come.

1 Timothy

6:9 But those who intend to be rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires, which plunge (or drown, sink) men into destruction and ruin.

6:10 For the love of money is a root of all evils, because of which some, aspiring after (craving for, longing for) money, have been led away from the faith and pierced themselves through with many pains.

6:11 But you, O man of God, flee these things, and pursue righteousness, Godliness, faith, love, endurance, meekness.

6:12 Fight the good fight of the faith; lay hold on the eternal life, to which you were called and have confessed the good confession before many witnesses.

6:17 Charge those who are rich in the present age not to be high-minded, nor to set their hope on the uncertainty of riches but on God, who affords us all things richly for our enjoyment

The Lord knows our heart, but most of the times, we are disobedient to Him. We do like to turn to Him, but we have many things within that we really love. May we unload our pride for Him to regain our heart. Give ourselves to the Lord again. Do not care for anything else. What we care for is the presence of the Lord; in His presence is fullness of joy.

O Lord, You know what’s in my heart,

Desires concealed in my inward parts;

Though “I am Yours” my mouth’s confessed,

By many loves my heart’s possessed.

O Lord, my desp’rate cry now heed—

Regain my heart! Your help I need!

O’erturn, expose what weighs me down.
