Faltering




I am forgetting the sovereignty
Of the I am
The strength that surpasses all
In humility waits for me
Not to pass by
I am forgetting how to follow
A path that takes every ounce
Of your soul and tears and love
So here I am
An empty vessel, waiting to be filled
Humble me, oh God
For my pride consumes me
Overtake me
For my steps are faltering
Be my Sovereign God
Be my Sovereign God
