Heavenly Father, Save me From Leaving

Let’s face it. Human beings are weird. We can’t totally understand ourselves, or make ourselves do what we need to do. That’s why we need to always pray that God will keep us close to Him. Because our natural selves are always looking for a way to escape.

The man who wrote “Come Thou Font” included a line “prone to wander, Lord I feel it,” and there’s a story that after writing that hymn, he lost his faith. Then one day he was sitting on a train next to a woman who shared the hymn with him. “Ma’am,” he said, “I wrote that song!”

Like I said, human beings are weird. :/

Lyrics

Heavenly Father, save me from grieving You with my gross ingratitude
Heavenly Father, save me from leaving You with my restless attitude
Save me, save me, from the harmful lies they gave me
Make me, make me, always follow You

Heavenly Father, save me from grieving You with my gross ingratitude
Heavenly Father, save me from leaving You even for an interlude
From truth

Isaiah 53:6

We all like sheep have gone astray, each one of us has turned to our own way…

Romans 7:15-25

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do…

I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing…

What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
