Conviction and Confession

This hymn was part of morning worship at church today.
It has such powerful words, of recongnizing sin, asking for salvation, and desiring to know God more.
It was a blessing to me, I hope it is for you too.

Take Me, O My Father, Take Me
Take me, O my Father, take me; take me, save me, through Thy Son;
that which Thou wouldst have me, make me, let Thy will in my be done.
Long from Thee my footsteps straying, thorny proved the way I trod;
weary come I now, and praying, take me to Thy love, my God.

Fruitless years with grief recalling, humbly I confess my sin;
at Thy feet, O Father, falling, to Thy household take me in.
Freely now to Thee I proffer this relenting hear of mine;
freely life and soul I offer, gift unworthy love like Thine.

Once the world's Redeemer, dying, bore our sins upon the tree;
on that sacrifice relying, now I look in hope to Thee.
Father, take me; all forgiving, fold me to Thy loving breast;
in Thy love forever living I must be forever blest.
