Lord, 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.
Lord, give me a holy humbleness,
so that I can be more like Thee
take from me my self-centeredness
let humility bend my prideful knee!
“But He gives more grace. Therefore He
says: ” God resists the proud, But
gives grace to the humble.”
King James Version
Deborah Ann Belka
