A Modern Psalm

How selfish am I
To blame the system
When it is I that used it wrong
When will I learn to stop asking others
When I should be asking you, Lord
Why do I expect men to know what only God can
Why do I refuse to give my desires to you
You have proven to know what’s best
And I have proven only a spectacular talent
For making wrong decisions
Even with the best of intentions

So let my heart be held steadfast only to you
Let my soul know only you are Lord
Let my actions reflect only my overwhelming gratitude
You are omniscient
You are omnipotent
You are omnipresent
So let it be your will not mine
I want to look through your eyes
I want to hear through your ears
I want to love through your heart
I am simply yours
And you are forever mine
