But You, Lord

I long to make you proud
but you, Lord, 
long to make me whole

I seek to live a good life
but you, Lord,
seek to give me life anew

I strive to be more loving
but you, Lord,
strive to pour more love within me

I ask you for help in my day
but you, Lord,
ask me to give you my day

I hope you look past my wrong-doing
but you, Lord,
want to use even that for my good

I desire to get things right
but you, Lord,
desire for me to walk humbly with you

I wallow in my lack of understanding and I crumble
but you, Lord,
smile in the hope that now my mind might be renewed
