I’m Sorry, Lord (Sequel to “I can do it, Lord”)

Oh Lord, I am so sorry
That I only thought of me
I wanted all the glory
But it’s You they need to see  

Today as I was reading
Of the branches and the vine
You said we must abide or fail
The plan and pow’r are Thine  

And now I see that all these things
That I had planned to do
Were useless, fruitless, empty, void
Of anything of You  

For when we do get in the way
And go out on our own
We nothing can accomplish
If we’re doing it alone

The devil, he was cast away
For wanting all the praise
So how could I conspire with him
By following his ways?  

It’s to the one and only God,
Through Jesus Christ our Saviour
Be glory, might and majesty
From now until forever   Amen.

Jude v. 25: “To the one only God, our Saviour through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory (splendor), majesty, might and dominion, and power and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen”
