Lord, keep my heart always true to You

1
Lord, keep my heart always true to You,
Never backsliding, always viewing You,
A heart that is pure that sees only You,
A heart that loves You and treasures only You.
  Your love constrains me to give my all to You.
Lord, I can’t help it; my heart is drawn to You.
Oh what a privilege! I give myself to You!
I love You, Lord, dearest Lord.
I love You! I just love You!
2
Lord, keep my love burning brightly for You,
A love never dwindling always hot for You,
A love, shining brighter all the way for You,
A love, so fresh like the day I first touched You.
3
Lord, take my life, I present it to You!
If I had a thousand, I’d pour all on You!
Nothing withholding, my all is for You.
My life and my future, dear Lord, is all for You.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God (Matt. 5:8). To be pure in heart is to be single in purpose, to have the single goal of accomplishing God's will for God's glory.

Being consecrated is a basic requirement for the understanding of God's will. God's will is revealed only to those who have consecrated their will to Him, that is, to those who are willing to choose God's will (Rom. 12:1).

May we daily cooperate with the Lord by practice praying: "Lord Jesus, we love You! Deal with our heart by renewing our mind, give us a loving emotion, a pure & right conscience, and a soft will. Make our heart pure and proper in loving and desiring only You, to receive in spirit the fellowship and sense of life, the law of the Spirit of life, and the anointing of the Triune-God within us!"

Lord, we love You because You loved us first. We respond to Your intense, fresh, constraining love.


Collected Works of Watchman Nee

The working of the Holy Spirit is the beginning of man's rebirth. In the original text, "moving" has the meaning of "overshadowing," "brooding." This indicates love and tenderness. This same word is used as "hovers" in Deuteronomy 32:11: "As the eagle rouses his nest, / Hovers over his young, / Spreads his wings, takes them, / And bears them up upon his pinions." Oh, may we respond more to the love of God! How His heart desires us! But who is "us"? We are just sinners, fallen humanity! He is not angry with us, nor does He look lightly upon us or reject us. He does not consider that even though we are without form and void and darkness, that we are unworthy of His Holy Spirit's brooding. Although He has "purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity" (Hab. 1:13), He humbled Himself to rescue those who were in the midst of dust and dung. O God! "What is man, that You remember him / And the son of man, that You visit him?" (Psa. 8:4). We really do not comprehend why God so loves sinners such as us. I especially do not comprehend why God loves me. Indeed, it is "not that we have loved God but that He loved us" (1 John 4:10). O God! How wonderful is Your grace! How true it is that Your "delights were with the sons of men" (Prov. 8:31)
