Cleanse Me (Search Me O God)


ESearch Ame, (/C)O EGod, and Bknow my heart toEday;

ATry Bme, (/C)O ESavior, F#majknow my thoughts, I B (/Bb)pray.

ESee Aif (/C)there Ebe some Bwicked way in Eme;

ACleanse Bme (/C)from Bevery Asin and F#mset Bme Efree.


I praise Thee, Lord, for cleansing me from sin;
Fulfill Thy Word, and make me pure within.
Fill me with fire where once I burned with shame;
Grant my desire to magnify Thy Name.


Lord, take my life, and make it wholly Thine;
Fill my poor heart with Thy great love divine.
Take all my will, my passion, self and pride;
I now surrender, Lord in me abide.


O Holy Ghost, revival comes from Thee;
Send a revival, start the work in me.
Thy Word declares thou wilt supply our need;
For blessings now, O Lord, I humbly plead.
