Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: When my soul feels empty and time goes on, How deep I hurt within, And then I open the Word of Life, It fills my spirit again.
Verse 2: There are times when I am alone at heart with burdens hard to bear, And then I cry to my God above, For He will answer my pray’r.
Verse 3: When my soul is tempted and I give in, O, Lord, I feel ashamed, And then I fall on my knees and cry, “Lord, set me free from this stain!”
Chorus: Open my heart, Live in my soul, Light up my eyes with a heavenly glow; Lord, cleanse my mind, Fill me, I pray, Open my heart till I meet You some day.
