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.

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!

A brother was asked "what do you do when you realise you have sinned?", he answered, "I fight condemnation, and fall into grace". This song always takes me to grace.

Hallelujah!


Dorothy Hicks

It matches my sentiment very closely.

Lord Jesus!

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.

Amen!

This song is exactly what I long for.

I feel like it was written just for me. :)

"Lord, I've seen Your purpose.

Your heart's unveiled to me.

Now I'd just like to see You gain me fully."

I always grieve the Lord, I am so hard-headed yet not a moment did He take His eyes off me. Oh the everlasting love of God! This hymn is for desperate lovers of Christ. I am so desperate, I have no peace until I get to know this hymn. Saints it's only a matter of time - let's rally forward for the reward. Let's not lose our first and best love for Him.
