Forgive me Lord, for the times I’m selfish,
When all I see are things from my point-of-view,
When my own hurt and pain are all I feel,
When I fail to acknowledge my own costs are due.
Forgive me Father, for the times I close my ears,
When all I hear are the beats of my own heart,
When my own fears have reared their heads,
When I forget to trust You to do Your part.
Forgive me Lord, for the times I judge others,
When all I see are the differences in others,
When I think I understand all that makes me right,
When I just don’t see the sin in which I smother.
Forgive me Lord, for damaging Your Holy reputation,
When all I do is push our own human laws,
When I think I’m right and I’m actually so wrong,
When I draw people away from Your Holy cause.
