New Covenant Song 7
With Passion for Yahweh
7:1 Yahweh, Eternal One, it’s me again.
I praise you for your loving care
2 for there are some would harm me,
wishing to tear out my heart like an abandoned child on the streets.
3 Dear Eternal One, show me the evil I have done?
Show me the blind spots in my life?
4 Have I mistakenly hurt another?
Have I used one for my own advantage?
5 Show me my error!
Use whatever discipline it takes to change me…
I want to be like Jesus.
(Give thanks and reflect on this.)
6 Arise Yahweh, in your glory!
May your glory shine on your servant!
Bring honor to your great name,
And guard the dignity of your kingdom.
7 Let your church rejoice in you!
Receive our worship and praise!
8 Yahweh, you have redeemed your people
With the blood of your Son.
You have clothed us with fresh, pure linen.
9 Oh Yahweh, convict our hearts!
Give us your heart!
You know us better than we know ourselves.
Give us the mind of Christ.
10 Eternal One, you are our transformer
creating Christ Jesus in us.
11 You are so holy,
so very good to the oppressed.
12 Bring repentance to our hearts
and convince us with the truth of your Word.
You have given us the treasure of your Word!
13 You have preserved it through time
and bear it’s truth to our hearts.
14 Your Word reveals the thoughts of people,
even when intentions are wrong.
15 Poor souls stumble and fall over their own mistakes.
16 The consequences of our errors are grievous to bear and offensive to your Spirit.
17 Thank you Yahweh, for your redemption;
I will sing the praises of Yahweh, the Eternal One,
