Bend My Will, O Lord

  • I Am Second

I’ve traveled thru this life doing self-serving deeds.
Now stop, this mountain is nothing but weeds.

Bend my will, O Lord, I want to be in your glory.
Bend my will, O Lord, I want to finish your story.

I’ve faltered and struggled because of my selfish ways.
My life has been full of darkness for too many days.

Bend my will, O Lord, I want to be in your glory.
Bend my will, O Lord, I want to finish your story.

In this wilderness I chose to no longer stay.
From this point my selfish deeds I put at bay.

Bend my will, O Lord, I want to be in your glory.
Bend my will O Lord I want to finish your story.

Now I have surrendered my life to you,
And because of that forever more I have life anew!

Thanks to Linda M., who shared her original poem with us on Facebook, reminding us of the freedom to live obedient lives as Second.
