O God, remember me

O God, remember me
on the nights and days i fall apart
for when i rush into the dark
when i spurn your Word and curse the land
and spit out all obscenity;
O God, remember me.

O God, remember me
no matter what my weak mouth say
on any other distant day
keep Your Word safe in my heart
that i might never turn from Thee
O God, remember me.

O God, remember me
who else could do what you can do
to know me well and know me through
yet give Your son to rescue this,
this foul creature to remedy;
O God, remember me.

O God, remember me
only You can save this dying soul
what use is life if my heart is cold
strike me down or strip me bare
let this alone be my heart’s decree,
my Lord, my Saviour, all praise unto Thee;

O God, remember me.
