BE YE HOLY


You call me O Holy One
To be pure and Holy as You.
The One high above the world,
Set apart from creation and sin.
But I am a mere mortal.
Do you not know my innermost
Thoughts and see my impure
And sinful desires?
It is impossible for me
Such unworthy wretch that I am.
It is only through your forgiveness
That my sins of scarlet be made
White as freshly fallen snow.
Though they be red like crimson,
You, O Holy one make me
White as wool.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean.
You set me apart for your pleasure
And see me as undefiled,
Blameless and innocent.
You see me through the blood
Of Jesus, your Son.
I have been washed by
The blood of the Lamb.
It is only through His
Shed blood that I can be
Pure and Holy as You.
