O Lord, I lift my heart to You
And bring my humble prayer
For You alone can intervene
And, though You’re God, You care.
I come unworthy of Your love –
A sinner saved by grace –
To plead for pardon, mercy, help
Here in this troubled place.
How kind You are and strong and just –
I do not know the half!
Lord, thank You for the mighty care
You show on my behalf.
So now I bring my soul’s request
With confidence You’ll hear
And that You’ll do whatever’s best
While always being near.
What perfect peace in knowing this:
My God will work for me!
When I have fixed my mind on Him
I’ve no anxiety.
