Batter my Heart, Dear God;

Batter my Heart, Dear God;


I am broken by life.

I live to be the rock for others,

but I fail to share Your gifts.

My body is weakened,

captive to society’s commands.

My every breath is consumed

by the desire of others.

Am I helping, O God?

are my efforts to aid

Destroyed by avarice?

Can I restore my soul

And pleasing to your eyes?

I knock on your door

But I get no response.

I am betrothed to your grace

and embraced by your breath.

My love for you is all consuming,

yet life makes me doubt your presence.

Great Father, I ask forgiveness

as I try to rise and stand without You.

Please enthrall my battered heart.
