1. Deliver me, O Lord my God, From self-deceiving pride, From lusts that lure my heart to sin And cares that plague my mind. Deliver me from anxious doubts That fill my days with grief And trouble my unsettled soul With thoughts of unbelief.
Refrain for st. 1, 2: I cry to you, O God of grace, Confessing all my sin. Create in me a blameless heart; Restore my joy again!
2. Deliver me, O Lord my God, From making proud demands That break the bond between the saints And shatter Your commands. Deliver me from selfish fears that long for man’s esteem And seek the fame of human praise As though it were supreme.
3. Deliver me, O Lord my God, From redirecting blame To justify my wickedness That shames Your holy name. Deliver me that I might know Your merciful embrace And testify to all the world The glories of Your grace!
Refrain for st. 3: I cry to you, O God of grace, Confessing all my sin. In Christ, You faithfully forgive— And I rejoice again!
