Not by power or might.

Fill me O Lord with your Spirit. 

Lead me to the rock that's higher than I.

Bend me and remould me.

Till I be like thee.


Consider my ways, and have pity on me.

For I have sinned and gone astray. 

Desiring to please myself and not you.

Seeking for glory where there is none.


Whom have I beside you?

Without you, there is no me.

Whatever I seek is embedded in you.

Your ways are perfect and just.


I thought I could do it my way.

I felt you were too slow.

So I decided to give it a try.

O what failure I encountered. 


Indeed its not by power, or by might.

But by your Spirit O Lord.

Teach me to be patient and wait on you.

For your ways are not my ways, your thoughts not my thoughts.
