HIS PERFECT WILL

So many times I've tried to do it on my own
But, nothing ever seemed to work out right
I realized I'd reap the seeds I'd sown
But, I want his perfect will in me tonight

I have confessed the sins I know that I have done
And asked him to forgive things I don't see
And I have claimed the promise, verse nine of First John
And I want his perfect will before I leave

And I'll present my body as a living sacrifice
Holy and acceptable to him
I won't conform to this world of sin and shame
But, be transformed by the renewing of my mind

Have you tried to earn salvation through good deeds
The Bible says that they won't help at all
By grace through faith in Jesus is all you need
Eternal life in Heaven -- heed his call

If you'll present your body as a living sacrifice
Holy and acceptable to him
Be not conformed to this world of sin and shame
But, be transformed by the renewing of your mind
