Challenge me, dear Lord, to never let you go,
Challenge me, dear Lord, my love to always show,
When all and everything around me abandons my need and is lost,
Draw me dearest Father, nearer to Thee, at all cost.
For You paid an excruciating price for me,
When Your Son hung so majestically upon that precious tree,
Majestic in Your power and in eternal aim,
For me to live, He endured such unimaginable pain.
Challenge and convict my oft backsliding heart,
So that nothing in this world will ever tear us apart,
And together eternally, we shall always be,
Send Your warmth to melt, mend, to reshape me.
