A Prayer for Cleansing, Restoration and Renewal

Sharon and I are privileged to have RG Huff and Carlita Huff as our neighbors… A wonderful Christian couple who have a long history of serving as Ministers of Music at several churches.

Rg Huff posted the following this morning on FB – his composition – the lyrics and suggested music for a wonderful hymn (a prayer really) for cleansing and renewal. I post it here with his permission…

God of Renewal, Growth and Change
Text: R. G. Huff

“God of renewal, growth and change,
in our disorder, rearrange
all wand’ring thoughts and wayward steps,
corrupted motives, secrets kept.

“Here we admit we lean t’ward sin.
Your restoration now begin.
Into our darkness, transfer light;
from drab of gray, show colors bright.

“Stunted in our maturity,
settling for less than we could be.
Nourish our lives; feed heart and soul
that we might flourish in our role.

“Much of our path is still the same.
Struggles and brokenness remain.
Alter our plans, our dreams renew.
This is our goal: to model you.”

Suggested Tune: MARYTON (“O Master, Let Me Walk with Thee”)

“Search me Oh God and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! See if there by any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!” (Psalm 139:23-24)

RG, your song – my prayer! Amen!!
