I Give My Spirit (Ps. 31)

Share

Words and music by Shannon Cerneka and Orin Johnson

REFRAIN
Empty, broken, lifeless
I give my spirit, Lord

VERSE 1
In you, O Lord, I take refuge.
Let me never be put to shame
In your Justice rescue me.
Redeem me, O faithful God.

VERSE 2
I am the scorn of all my enemies,
a horror to all my friends.
Like the dead, I am forgotten;
like a broken and useless vessel.

VERSE 3
My fate lies solely in your hands.
My Father, deliver me!
O Lord, I say, “You are my God.”
I place all my trust in you.

VERSE 4
Let your face shine on your servant
and save me, O Lord of love
All who wait for the Lord:
Have courage, be strong, find hope!
