Lord, it is my desire

Lord, it is my desire

To serve your church below.

I meet the standards you require.

This, to your grace I owe.


Now as I wait to see

What your will has designed,

All of the many faults in me

Are brought before my mind.


How can I properly serve?

I have so much to learn.

This is a place I don't deserve,

And I could never earn.


The grace that saved my soul

Will fit me for the task.

Lord, give that grace to fill this role,

This, on my knees, I ask.


And if I come to see

This path is not your will,

I offer all you've given me

To love and serve you still.
