LORD, WE NEED YOUR CLEANSING WORD
Tune: Holy Spirit, Faithful Guide #169 77.77.D)
Holy Father, hear our prayers,
As we cast on You our cares:
Seal to us Your covenant grace
And our hearts unite in peace.
Saved by grace, redeemed by blood,
We are reconciled to God!
Yet, while living in this world,
Lord, we need Your cleansing Word.
Spirit of the living God,
Shine upon the sacred Word:
As God's messenger proclaims
Christ, the sin-atoning Lamb.
Jesus, Lord, we look to You,
Savior of God's chosen few,
Head of all the chosen race,
Meet with us and give us grace.
