Purify

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the encouraging comments on my Facebook post. And forgive me, I sang it at First Baptist Moore’s Lane in Texarkana back in 2005 at either a Sunday night service or Wednesday night service. Vicki Carr was gracious to play with just my melody and chords.

In case you don’t have Facebook, I put it on YouTube:

I am posting this to share the lyrics I wrote back in 2005:

Purify/Purified
(original Key A major)

(Verse 1)
Lord, here I am again.
Longing to see Your face
You see I need
Your comfort, Lord
And the beauty of Your grace

(Bridge 1)
Sometimes it seems
As the days go by
I don’t even look like Your child
So forgive me of my unloveliness
And hold me for a while

(Chorus 1)
      Purify me, Lord
      I need a touch from You
      Fill my heart with Your righteousness
      Make me whole and make me new

(Verse 2)
Lord, now I run to you
Longing to see Your face
Your love, it comforts me
With the beauty of Your grace

(Bridge 2)
You teach me, Lord
As the days go by
And I look like I am Your child
You forgave me of my unloveliness
And You held me for a while.

(Chorus 2)
      You Purified me, Lord
      You gave a touch so true
      You filled my heart with Your righteousness
      Now I’m whole and I’m renewed

(for Corporate Worship)
      Purify us, Lord
      We need a touch from You
      Fill our heart with Your righteousness
      Make us whole and make us new
