I want to be sanctified and set apart!
This is my heart’s desire!
I want all the old to be burned away
Purified in Holy fire!
I want to feel lost and detached from this world
And know that this isn’t my home!
I want my thoughts to reflect Yours forever
Even when I am alone.
I want to draw closer all the days of my life
To You and the life you contain!
I want separation from this world I live in!
In You, I want to remain!
Sanctify me, Lord I ask and I plea!
Wash all of this world away!
Scrub me clean ‘til I reflect only you,
And clean me again every day!
I want more of you, and I want less of me!
Take over my mind and my heart!
Lord, what I want is to be sanctified!
Please, Father, set me apart!
