My Prayer Today

This song popped into my head yesterday while I was out walking around the hills and it was in my mind all night and when I woke up this morning and then today in chapel they sang it.
*update* and then again in Bible study Friday night, at a formalish dinner Saturday night, and in service Sunday night . . . Ok, I think perhaps I needed to be encouraged with the awesome truth of my relationship with my Master :)

O Great God
O great God of highest heaven
Occupy my lowly heart 
Own it all and reign supreme 
Conquer every rebel power
Let no vice or sin remain 
That resists Your holy war
You have loved and purchased me 
Make me Yours forevermore

I was blinded by my sin 
Had no ears to hear your voice
Did not know Your love within 
Had no taste for heaven's joys
Then Your Spirit gave me life 
Opened up Your Word to me
Through the gospel of Your Son
Gave me endless hope and peace

Help me now to live a life 
That's dependent on Your grace
Keep my heart and guard my soul
From the evils that I face
You are worthy to be praised
With my every thought and deed
O great God of highest heaven
Glorify Your Name through me
