Overrule Me


I am a wayward child at times
Presuming on your grace
I've committed oh so many crimes
Like resisting your embrace
Lord prevail over my ignorance
My arguments disallow
Take me to my knees till my spirit repents
Reverse my bad decisions somehow

Oh Jesus! overrule me
For your glory and my good
Though Satan tries to fool me
I'll surrender to you
I will render to you
My obedience just as I should

Make me a man under authority
Change my heart and change my mind
Over whelm my desires till your way I see
And your perfect will may I find
When I am contrary and act like a fool
Your discipline is what I need
So my stubborn stony heart overrule
Teach me to obey as you intercede

Wretched man that I am, who will rescue me
Who in the world will give me liberty
From this life that is dominated by sin?
Thank God for my deliverance in Him
The death sentence is overruled and I am free

Oh Jesus, overrule me
For your glory and my good
Though Satan tries to fool me
I'll surrender to you
I will render to you
My obedience just as I should

Jesus, overrule me
Jesus, overrule me
Jesus, overrule me

What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.
