O my God, you are so holy,
You humble yourself to behold,
The heavens of heavens.
O Lord Jesus, you took my nature,
You condescended to indwell me:
From the first day I met you,
All I wanted to do was break my life before you:
A victim of love.
Your call is holy and I'm unworthy,
This fills my heart with holy yearning,
To be all that you want.
I've fought a good fight,
Finished my course,
Kept the faith (to the end)!
Then I remember all my rebellion,
O you suffered long under my transgressions -
What a fool have I been!
How can the captives of your beauty,
Turn from the commandment, O so holy?
My heart is shattered.
No man can love you that doesn't obey you,
So I keep your commandments: they're a song in the night
To your holy one.
Now I'll spend my days till my latest hours,
Singing this love song of pure obedience:
It's a love song...
