Lord, strip me of myself
and clothe me in you.
For I recognize the extent of my wisdom,
and how foolish it is to You.
For the only way to gain in my wisdom
is to completely surrender it
And to identify only in the wisdom of you.
In my own plan, I wander,
Yet in Yours, I can walk straight.
For you are my compass; my bearing,
And only You can light my way.
As I stumble out of the darkness,
You enable me to stand upright
And chase after the sun.
So if anyone looks towards me,
They are overwhelmed by your brightness.
