MORE OF THEE, LESS OF ME
Helen Steiner Rice
Take me and break me and make me, dear God,
Just what you want me to beó
Give me the strength to accept what you send
And eyes with the vision to see
All the small arrogant ways that I have
And the vain little things that I do,
Make me aware that Iím often concerned
More with MYSELF than with YOU!
Uncover before me my weakness and greed
And help me to search deep inside
So I may discover how easy it is
To be selfishly lost in my prideó
And then in Thy goodness and mercy
Look down on this weak, erring one
And tell me that I am forgiven
For all Iíve so willfully done.
And teach me to humbly start following
The path that the dear Savior trod
So Iíll find at the end of lifeís journey
A HOME IN THE CITY OF GOD!
