Pleasing, and Perfect, and Good,
That's where I wanna be.
Of course… I would…
Not long for a place away from He
Yet in this life of sin
I could not,
Do so on a whim.
Brothers! My Brothers! Christians!
We are to be a living sacrifice,
Even though we are wishin'
To be out of this active vice.
Worshipping in acts so spiritual,
Transformed I will be
In this life of me,
A King so virtual.
So no longer will I take up this worldly plow
And be dragged in the dirt and grim
That my Lord and Savior can see me even now
As his Son and Daughter to be thine.
I am to be stripped clean
Of my impure mind.
In His will Divine
Afloat, in this boat, of this Stream.
