Create In Me A Clean Heart...

Create In Me A Clean Heart...
Create in me a clean heart, Oh God,
and renew a right spirit within me.
May my flesh be crucified...
so that YOU... others may see!
Please don't remove from me
 your presence... or Holy Spirit.
May I meditate upon your word...
and daily live it!
Restore unto me the joy
 of your salvation...
As I serve you with a deep
love and appreciation!
 I will teach sinners,
of your wondrous ways.
So that they my serve you
 all of their days!
I will shout aloud of your
 righteousness and proclaim
That you have delivered me
from all guilt and shame.
As my lips are open...
 I will sing glory & praise to YOU!
May you be exalted in all
that I say and do.
My sacrifice to you are a spirit
 and heart that's broken.
God will not reject me...
this he has spoken!
May I live in sacrifice and obedience
as I come to your altar.
You are my solid rock...
like the "Rock of Gibraltar!"
Thank you for cleansing
 and making me whole.
You brought healing...
and restored my soul!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
