“Contest of Strength”
Father you make me,
To know you and take me,
Into the mystery of your love,
Gift upon gift, love on the Cross,
As you call me.
Refrain: If it be your will,
Won’t you show me, can you tell me?
My life is in your hands,
Let your mercy, as you call me,
Beg your mercy, as you call me,
Lord, let your mercy as you call me, give you glory.
So take what you gave me,
And free me for slavery,
In Perfect Love Crucified,
A fool to the world, but alive in the Truth,
Bridge: A contest of strength, my will or yours, Lord,
Can I afford to listen to anyone’s voice but the Lover of my soul?
