Bless Me!

So often, Lord, I intercede
For others in their sin and need -
Their faults it seems are plain to see.
Now I am glad You showed to me
I too should pray, "O Lord, Bless me!"

Some sins are hidden deep inside,
Such as self-righteousness and pride.
Lord grant me true humility
And insight my own faults to see,
Right now, my spirit cries "Bless me".

Fill me with Your sweet love divine,
My attitudes be tuned with Thine,
Whatever happens, may I be
With open heart, continually
Receptive, so You can bless me!

Then, Lord, with hindrances removed,
Your precious promises all proved,
Christ's beauty others then may see;
Your Spirit manifested be;
Because You did, O Lord, bless me!
