Take me as I am with all my sin and shame

(Joseph Philpot, "Daily Portions")

"Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed;
 save me, and I shall be saved." Jer. 17:14

Here is this sin!  Save me from it!

Here is this snare!  Break it to pieces!

Here is this lust!  Lord, subdue it!

Here is this temptation!  Deliver me out of it!

Here is my proud heart!  Lord, humble it!

Here is my unbelieving heart!  Take it away,
and give me faith; give me submission to
Your mind and will.

Take me as I am with all my sin and
shame
and work in me everything well
pleasing in Your sight.
