How my heart cries out
Through the depths of emptiness
Filll me, Oh Lord,
With Your perfect love

My soul stirs within me
Longing to be set free
From my selfishness,
My pride and my fear.

Father, take these
Self-inflicted chains
Break them, break me,
And build me up again.

Let me love as You do,
Forgive the same way,
And forget myself
As You remember me...
