Give Me O Lord

The Solo Committee  •  Digital Sheet Music


When we realized how similar Ephesians 3:14 and the hymn words to ‘Give Me O Lord’ were as prayers, we saw how they could be woven together as one prayer, giving new light to them both. Words by James J Rome and Susan Mack, music by Edward Dearle and Susan Mack, arranged by Robert Rockabrand.

Give Me O Lord, an Understanding Heart

Give me O Lord, an understanding heart;
That I may learn to know myself in Thee.
To spurn the wrong and choose the better part;
And thus from sinful bondage be set free.

I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord,
That he would grant me, according to his riches,
To be strengthened by his Spirit
In the inner man, The Kingdom within.

Give me, O Lord, a meek and contrite heart,
That I may learn to quell all selfish pride;
Bowing before Thee, see Thee as Thou art;
And neath Thy sheltering presence safely hide.

That Christ may dwell in my heart by faith;
That I be rooted and grounded in love.
That I comprehend with saints
The breadth and length, the depth and height.

Give me, O Lord, a gentle loving heart,
That I may learn to be more tender kind,
And with Thy healing touch, each wound and smart
With Christly bands of Love and Truth to bind.

And may I know the love of Christ
Which passeth all knowledge
May I be filled with all the fullness,
The fullness of God.
Give me, O Lord, an understanding heart,
