Intercede for me today
my High Priest
have sympathy
—Tempted, Unfaltering—
for the weak, unloving
that I may not be
blown away,
sifted by these winds:
I have fallen again, and
I, close to despair,
would by grace have faith
to hear You
a grand request,
to Your Father
my Father
Your God
my God
to not let me be utterly cast down,
but be restored again
that Your mercy and power
may be seen
as beams of white light
bursting through
my severe cracks
of doubt and sin.
Oh, pray for me,
You who are One with the Father
empower me by Your Spirit
to love You
Defend me today,
my Advocate,
before the Father
display again Your scars
to Him
who sent You forth to be
a propitiation for sin
For I have not been
a flawless witness
to Your holy commands
But make me to grasp
the fullness of that
great proclamation,
“It is finished.”
and worship in
Spirit and truth
for You have risen
and You have become for me
wisdom from God,
my righteousness,
sanctification and
plead for me
to finish this race
with enduring hope
“Jesus led me all the way…”
The wings on my feet,
Your Spirit dwelling in me,
pressing forward to reach
Your holy city.
