Make Me a Slave to Righteousness
The message here is clear to see
No man is free from slavery.
Choose carefully the God you serve;
Your life is open for all to observe.
Grace proclaims that we are set free.
No longer can sin claim mastery.
Though slavery to sin, the flesh will crave
I choose to become a righteous slave.
Make me a slave, a righteous tool.
Forbid that I play the part of a fool!
I have been raised to new life in Christ
Dead to foul sin’s attempt to entice.
Renew my mind, transform my heart.
Strengthen my will to do my part.
I trust the promise of spiritual power
To walk with you, Lord, hour by hour.
Then when the candle of life grows dim
And my spirit departs and returns to Him;
The moment I see my Savior’s face—
I will know fully His wondrous grace.
