News At Eleven – Hold Me In Your Light, O God lyrics

Within this prison, I shrink in fear
My sins around me like a chain
My sentence fitting, for my guilt is clear
I’m worthy of this shame

For things I’ve done, and failed to do
My sins are mine and mine alone
Lord, hear this sinner, for only you
Can break through this heart of stone

You said “I am here till the end; with you both night and day”
So now, Lord, send your Spirit friend
To be with me, I pray

Show me your Spirit in wind and flame
Show mercy to a sinful one
Show me the vision to serve your name
That thy will on Earth be done

(repeat chorus)

Hold me in your light, O God
Send to me your Spirit’s flame
Save me from the night, my Lord
Defend my heart from evil’s claim
Save me from the plight of sin
Cleanse me of my guilt and shame
Melt my heart, ignite my soul
Dwell in me and make me whole
Hold me in your light, O God
Break this frozen heart of stone
Kindle and ignite your fire
Make me burn with love alone
Hold me in your light, O God
Wake the seeds of love you’ve sown
Melt my heart, ignite my soul
Dwell in me and make me whole
