A BROKEN SPIRIT

Ps. 51:16 "For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise."

************

Broken and contrite,
We kneel before You…LORD;
The sin of pride has brought us low,
Before You, we do humbly bow…Oh God.

Sometimes we get puffed-up,
Are down-right arrogant;
Forget our humble beginning,
Are boastful…when we should be silent.

Forgive us for the times,
When Your voice we did not heed;
And, running off ahead,
Thought You…we did not need.

Others we have hurt,
Those for whom You died;
And whatever for…it was,
Just our stupid pride.

Pride goes before a fall,
And, surely we shall do that;
The higher we exalt ourselves,
More misery…we begat.

We bow down before You…LORD,
Humbled by Your Word;
Why did we go astray,
After all Your Word we've heard?

Cause us now…Oh LORD,
So sensitive to be;
Quickened by Your Spirit,
In all things…this our humble plea.
