Jesus, give me a humble heart,
teach me to have a meek attitude
take from me, my selfish pride
fill my soul with eternal gratitude.
Disrobe me of my self-importance,
strip my conceit and arrogance
remove the smugness on my face
rip away any self-imposed relevance.
Cloth me in Your righteousness,
wrap me in Your truth and love
cover me with the Holy Spirit
bind me to Your Father up above.
Jesus, give me a holy humbleness,
dispose of any remaining selfish debris
take from me my self-centerness
let humility bend my prideful knee!
King James Version
“But He gives more grace. Therefore He
says: ” God resists the proud, But
gives grace to the humble.”
Deborah Ann Belka
