Though I love You, Lord

1
Though I love You, Lord,
My life seems all deformed.
I give my life to You—
Then drift away.
Lord, may I ask You that You’d draw me yet again,
And keep me running after You.
  Lord, I’ve seen Your purpose.
Your heart’s unveiled to me.
Now I’d just like to see You gain me fully.
Though You I often limit
And fail by compromise,
Keep me in the index of Your eyes.
2
Lord, I want Your best.
I want Your full blessing.
I don’t want any less,
Though good it be.
Have mercy, Lord, to push, to pull, lay hold of me.
Keep me still running toward the prize.
3
Mold me, shape me, Lord.
Be my reality.
Even break my heart,
If it has to be.
I’m desperate, Lord, that You would have Your way with me.
Others could touch You then through me.
4
Set my heart aflame.
Don’t let me stay the same.
Don’t let things remain
Which now grieve You.
My life I give to You and all I’ve claimed as mine.
May I just hold, Lord, unto You.

Though I love You, Lord, my life seems all deformed.

I give my life to You—Then drift away.

Lord, may I ask You that You’d draw me yet again,

And keep me running after You.

An amazing prayer to the Lord.

Though I love You, Lord, my life seems all deformed.

I give my life to You—then drift away.

Lord, may I ask You that You’d draw me yet again, and keep me running after You.

I give my life to You, then drift away. Even break my heart, if it has to be. I'm desperate, Lord, that You would have Your way in me. May I just hold, Lord, unto You.

Listening to this hymn is very timely. I want to share this experience of mine, the shepherding that this song has provided me since I had not seen any saint around the boarding house to share this with. hehehe. so here goes: My college days are finally over. The series of events has ended. What now? What next? I've been very busy for quite a while and now, all those things had come to an end. No more paper works and sleepless nights. Thank God those days were finally over. But why do I feel unsatisfied? Why do I feel something is still missing, something that I did not accomplish. Didn't I hit the target when I finished college? Truly it is vain to accomplish something of the world without consecrating it to the Lord. All this time, it was just me. I did not consider the Lord a part of me. We were apart all this time because if we’re not, I would not feel discontent. It has been 2 weeks when I last had my private time with the Lord in the morning. I feel very lonely deep inside, and I’m sure the Lord feels the same way too. I've been very busy for the graduation ceremony, the requirements I had to finish, the deadlines I had to beat, that I forgot to make time with my God. I've been thinking about this condition lately and still could not find a solution to it. Then my sister asked me to play a song and choose this. While listening, the lyrics hit me. There and back again. Thank You Lord, you are everything. You are the lyrics of this hymn, you are the song itself. Lord, you are my song. Lord Jesus, draw us nearer. Gain us fully, Lord. Be my reality.

Truly the Lord is our enjoyment, our rest and satisfaction, and everything under the sun is vanity of vanities,..May the Lord continue to flow in us and make us more open to receive His divine dispensing...:)

This hymn is SO full of reality! I'm so thankful it's on the latest NYCYPCD. Through them I've heard it for the first time! This is a precious stanza to me:

Mold me, shape me, Lord.

Be my reality.

Even break my heart,

If it has to be.

I’m desperate, Lord, that You would have Your way with me.

Others could touch You then through me.

Lord, gain what You must through me! I'm just open to You! Lord Jesus, I love You!
