Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise. Jeremiah 17:14
Here is this sin! Save me from it!—Here is this snare! Break it to pieces!—Here is this lust! Lord, subdue it!—Here is this temptation! Deliver me out of it!—Here is my proud heart! Lord, humble it!—Here is my unbelieving heart! Take it away, and give me faith—give me submission to Your mind and will. Take me as I am with all my sin and shame and work in me everything well pleasing in Your sight.
J. C. Philpot (1802 – 1869)
