Captivate my heart, O Lord,
Ransack and decimate my sins
shatter all of my dreams and hopes
if you were not invited too.
Banish my selfish, prideful heart
that wants only to be seen by others
hold hostage in me the un-surrendered
unwavering, unapologetic closets
that I have kept from your light.
Shake me into awakening
make me bleed so I can feel
Your love must hurt me deeply
before I can be restored.
Melt away my apathy
I’ve been far too numb to care
tear down my idol worship
of things and people and places
Lord begin this in me today…
Violently awaken me
and allow me to drink from your
still waters and refreshing grace
I’ve been comatose for far too long
like a sleepwalker through life.
Tear away these scales from my eyes
allow me to finally see the world
in your blinding light.
Shine on me and reveal how I really am.
