Lord, there is a place in me
That even I don’t know;
A place that’s buried so deep down,
I didn’t want to go.
But if You want to use me, Lord,
As now I know You do;
Then, Lord, I’ll place my hand in Yours,
And search my heart with You.
Then whatever we find there, Lord,
I’ll place within Your hands;
To do with what You want to do,
For now I understand
That I’ve been holding back a little
Piece, Lord, just for me.
Now I want You to have it,
So I can be fully free
To lay my life before You;
Open to Your holy will.
Please take me now, and use me;
For my heart is clean and still.
“Search me, O God, and know my heart:
try me, and know my thoughts”
