Lower Me

            My head is too proud,
            My nose is too high.
            I breath in the clouds
            That roam through the sky

            I'm selfish and stingy,
            I think that I'm better.
            I'm lazy at times
            And not a go-getter.

            I'm bossy, they say;
            I don't doubt that it's true.
            And now, dearest God,
            I am coming to You.

            Lower me, Lord
            To the depths of the sea.
            I do not deserve
            What you've given to me.

            Take my head in the sky
            And bring it way down.
            Lower me, Lord,
            To the deep, deep ground.

            Give me Your grace,
            Let all pride depart,
            And lower me into
            The realms of Your heart.
