Lord, I must confess it's true. Much of what I say and do Is focused more on me than You. Forgive my selfish ways. Build Your holy fire in me. Let's its flames burn bright and free Until Your character is seen And mine just fades away.
(CHORUS) I lay down my stubborn pride. Set my childish dreams aside. And I offer You my life. I give everything to You. I lay down my worldly claim Count it's loss as precious gain For Your kingdom and Your name I'd give anything for You to be seen in me.
(BRIDGE) You must increase, I must decrease More of You and less of me Dying to myself so You can come alive in me.
