First


Jesus,

You own my nose.
You own my ears.
You own my toes.
You own my fears.

You own my hands,
My tools, my ropes.
You own my plans.
You own my hopes.

You own each bone,
Each day, each night.
Nothing's my own,
Nor mine by right.

You own my best.
You own my worst.
I yield. I rest.
You, Lord, are first.

...yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.
(1 Corinthians 8:6 ESV)
