A Clean, Holy Sacrifice


In the depths of my despair,
I offer You myself. 
A clean, holy sacrifice
Is all Your heart longs for.
Unworthy, ungrateful, undeserved favor - 
In exchange for my wicked ways - 
Were granted to me that one amazing day
When You washed my sins away.

How could I ever repay You
Of the greatest gift one can give?
A clean, holy sacrifice
Is all Your heart longs for.
Refine me in Your fire,
Purge my heart and soul
Make my life's sacrifice an offer of righteousness - 
God, please make me whole.

Birth within me a desire for only You
To share throughout the world.
A clean, holy sacrifice
Is all Your heart longs for - 
The world -may they see You lifted up,
On high, in all Your glory
Make me a messenger of Your gospel
So all may return to You.
