My Heart’s Desire
Lord, let my love go to Your people;
Let my heart break for the lost;
Let me give my life in service,
For the message of the cross.
Let me go to all the nations,
Or let me serve You here at home –
For wherever You will lead me,
Let me kneel before Your throne.
Let me see others as You see them;
Let me love them as You do;
Let my heart be burdened greatly,
To bring lost children home to You.
Let me pour my heart out to You;
Let me petition You each day;
Let Your love flow right through me,
Bowing before You as I pray.
Let me carry Your Word to others,
As You guide me by Your hand;
Let me boldly speak Your wonders –
Lord, open hearts to understand.
Give me wisdom, give me courage;
Let me be part of Your plan;
Let me always persevere
In this grace in which I stand.
Lord, as You go before me,
Let my feet so gladly follow.
Let me always share Your mercies
To a world lost and hollow.
Let me carry forth this Good News,
Lord, and set the captives free;
Let me serve You with my whole heart,
As I give myself to Thee.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;
to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith:
as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
