16. Cause Me to Live in My First Love

(Supl. 48)

Jesus, I come here, today to hear Your voice

Come and speak with me freely, oh Holy Spirit.

I want to be saved, that I may be free to live

Your anointing, so precious, comes my being to restore.


Renew in me my foremost love, oh dearest Lord

To seek you with a burning heart,

So I will give my being, wholly to you Lord again,

As before I consecrate my life to you.


Cause me, oh Lord, to come back to my first love      2x

Cause me, oh Lord, to come back to my first love.


I must always take you, as my food and my supply,

To become an overcomer, and express you through my being.

Your holy, divine nature will be wrought more into me

And by eating of you, Lord, I will one day be transformed.


To gain You, Lord, I now abandon everything

You are the only One for me

You are so precious, incomparable and dear to me

A treasure in me so unsearchable.


Cause me, oh Lord, to come back to my first love      2x

Cause me, oh Lord, to come back to my first love.
