Cleanse Me

Lord, my own life needs healing,
Cleanse me from all the lies;
Of all my imperfection,
When out of me it cries.

This moment serves a purpose,
To free me from all guilt;
And cleanse my heart out deeply,
So a firm foundation is built.

The devil, he has a foothold,
And he's no letting go;
I cry out to you Lord,
Help me to say no!

I know your spirit guides me,
I feel him every day;
But when I feel confident,
It's then I drift away.

Lord free me from my pride,
My lust, my guilt, my pain;
I need you here forever,
Then forever, through you, I'll gain.
