Lord, Give me Light!!

1. If I have not forsaken all
In answer to Thy loving call;
If I’ve kept something back from Thee,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.
Lord, help me judge myself each day,
To walk this new and living way.
I seek Thy grace with all my heart,
To be made pure, just as Thou art.

2. If anything upon this earth
Attracts me with its sense of worth;
If money has a hold on me,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

3. If all my life revolves round me
And thoughts of my own family;
If I am living selfishly,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

4. Is there some good I should have done?
Is there some soul I should have won?
Have I hurt someone thoughtlessly?
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

5. If someone’s failure has not wrought
Concern and care within my heart;
If I’ve judged others inwardly,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

6. If I have cared for man’s applause,
Or sought my own and shunned the cross;
If I have feared man’s mockery,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

7. If I’ve not sought Thy pow’r in prayer,
Because of earthly toils and care;
If I’m not longing after Thee,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

-Zac Poonen
