Lord make me a disciple

As I learn Your noble ways,

My life to be surrendered

For Your glory and Your praise.

Remove the worldly traits

Which choke the soul within,

And raise Your holy banner

So new life can now begin.

Establish healthy patterns

As I learn to walk Your way,

And place compassion in my heart

For thirsty souls each day.

Remove excuses from my plate

As I learn to eat Your bread,

And may Your Spirit dwell within

My heart and not my head.

Lord train my feet to move

So I touch the hungry hearts,

Teach my soul to pray

So I’m truly set apart.

As I learn to hear Your voice

More like You I learn to be,

You prepare my home above

So Your face one day I’ll see.
