Incense

What is my sacrifice unto You?

What is my heritage? My inheritance?

What is my heart set on and in?

Keep my will upon its knees.

Where is my joy?

What is my meditation?

Draw me in.

Gladly kneel to leave my pride. 

What is at stake? What am I willing to not do?

One Thing… I seek.

One Thing… I know.

Step by step You’ll lead me.

Only let my life be fragrant.

Like Incense

Lyrics:

May my prayer like incense rise before You
The lifting of my hands as sacrifice
Oh Lord Jesus turn Your eyes upon me
For I know there is mercy in Your sight

Your statutes are my heritage forever
My heart is set on keeping Your decrees
Please still my anxious urge toward rebellion
Let Love keep my will upon its knees

Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You

To all creation I can see a limit
But Your commands are boundless and have none
So Your Word is my joy and meditation
From the rising to the setting of the sun

All Your ways are loving and are faithful
The road is narrow but Your burden light
Because You gladly lean to lead the humble
I shall gladly kneel to leave my pride

I will seek You in the morning
I will learn to walk in Your ways
And step by step You’ll lead me
And I will follow You all of my days
