“I once was lost, but now I’m found”…the heart of one who finally ‘sees’.

You’ve prepared a Table, and I’ve come at last, The broken bread, the poured out wine, were just memories of the past.

But today I’ve come, to the Table again, God, You know me, You’ve watched, I’ve broken Your heart, and not only Yours – Can I make a new start?

Which way am I going? Do I even know its end? It’s the end of ‘not caring’ – God help me care,  help me bend.

Revive me again, O Lord, You’re in my heart, but I’ve quenched Your great Spirit, forgive me, don’t depart.

I need you like all the old songs sing, like the flower needs the rain, refresh me again-

You forgive, You forgive,  You forgive evermore, take my hard heart and make it soft as before.

For You are the Potter, and I am the clay, mold me and break me and make me a new- that I would once more give wholehearted Praise, in simplicity, to You.

To You alone, I give You Praise, revive me O LORD and change my ways.

That my feet, that my hands, that my lips that speak, would give glory to You, Oh, God – my flesh is so weak –

So I ask from my heart at Your Table today, revive me again, make my spirit willing, time…

and time…


Be my Savior, forgive all my sin, and may Your face shine upon me, yes, shine upon me, forever – forever and again.

Thank you for preparing this Table for me,  even in the presence of all my enemies, but today I come and I have come at last, what took me so long, Your love is so steadfast!

I see Your sacrifice was made just for me, I love You Lord Jesus. Thank You for First loving me.

In Jesus name, Amen.
