Consume Me

I desire to draw close to You
Every day that I’m alive.
To climb into Your loving arms
And let my spirit thrive.

To be more a part of You
Than I’ve ever been before.
That every single part of me
Is You right to the core.

For my will to submit to Yours,
Your Spirit to take hold.
Crush the desires of my flesh
That I might fit Your holy mold.

Take away that which hinders
Your Spirit’s sovereign move.
Chip away the sin that kills—
Of which You would reprove.

Consume me, Lord with Your holy fire
All my faults and my desires.
Engulf me Lord with Your Holy Spirit
Fill me Lord, ’til I can’t bear it.
