Gimme Gimme Gimme




In a world where everyone screams
"GIMME GIMME GIMME"
I want this and that and that 
always some money
Oh, what's that thing so shiny,
and someone to call hunny
to make me a happy chappy

everyone living for the moment
and no perspective for what lasts

May our prayers be
Lord give me: 
New eyes to see
Your majesty
Your love and grace
and to seek your face

Lord give me
New things to delight in
delight in Your beauty
Your eternal faithful word
Your plans for the world

Lord give me
a Mind that ponders
on all Your wonders
a mind that yearn
to learn of You more and more

Lord give me
A new heart
That accepts your forgiveness
and a heart
that loves others
but loves You more
