Father God I bow before you

Andrew has written a wonderful hymn for us to reflect upon and even use in worship.

Father God I bow before you

by Andrew Goddard

Father God, I bow before you
Fall face down before your throne.
Turn away from all my idols
Vow to worship you alone
But my heart is weak and failing
Other gods still claim my love
Purify me, cleanse and heal me
Pour your power from above

Christ, I've heard your call to follow
Left behind all I held dear
Fixed my eyes on you my Saviour
Sought to live by faith not fear
But my sin it still entangles
And the world woos me away
By your heavenly intercession
Keep me faithful day by day

Holy Spirit, I adore you
I now know the life you bring
Born again by breath of heaven
My dry bones you've taught to sing
But my flesh still wars against you
Draws me back into the night
Fire of God fall fresh upon me
Melt my heart and give me light

Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Love divine eternally
I was captive, lost and dying
You have found and rescued me
Though my body is decaying
You have conquered death and sin
Vanquished powers by resurrection
Bring your new creation in

Tune. Come thou fount of every blessing (although any D would obviously work)
