OUR RIGHTEOUS SAVIOR, by Carl Gooch

Our Righteous Savior


Lord, open our blind eyes,
To our ways you despise.
Let us see and turn away,
From our sins of this day.


Purge our hearts of hate,
And on your word meditate.
Open our ears to what you say,
And lead us along your way.


We live in a world of greed,
On our selfishness we feed.
Our lips have become still,
We do not speak when they kill.
We no longer are shocked
When we hear your name mocked.


You have paid for us the price;
You are the lamb of sacrifice.
We call on your precious love,
Send your strength from above.


We come to you on bended knee
For only in you are we set free.
Lord, remind us to call upon you,
To seek you in all we say and do.
You are our Lord, our focus;
Our Righteous Savior.
