Drawing away, from myself!

    Drawing away, from myself!

    Oh God, my God,
    and worthy are you!
    Great and powerful,
    are you over all!
    Who can go against you?
    None can!

    In my self,
    I am nothing of gain!
    In my own,
    everything in me is all in vain!
    As when I look at myself,
    compared to you Lord,
    there is nothing to be found!
    Nothing of any worthy,
    nor of any glory to abound!

    It is when I,
    look away from myself!
    And put my whole gaze,
    towards you Lord!
    Esteeming others,
    as better and more important than myself.
    That I will get,
    the right focus and wants in check!

    As when everything is more about me,
    I get blinded from my sight in Thee!
    And my mind will become more set,
    on more carnal ways!
    Away from your truth Lord,
    and more away from your Word!
    Not walking in the Spirit,
    but in the will of men!

    As when I am more focused,
    In myself.
    I decide looking more,
    into the heart of men.
    I will not be looking,
    at God's heart.
    Nor will I be looking,
    into God's will!

    So Lord,
    please draw me more away from myself!
    And draw me more,
    towards you and your truth!
    So that I can be drawn,
    more towards your heart's desire!
    So that I can be,
    staying in and walking in your will!
