What Shall I Offer To The Lord?

Oct 2016    

How shall I come before the Lord,
Bow down before the exalted God?
Will a perfect prescribed sacrifice
Offered on the altar suffice?

Will sacrifices in abundance,
Offered without repentance?
Will the gift of my firstborn alone,
My life transform, my sin atone?

You have shown, Lord, what is right
In your sovereign righteous sight;
Justice and love for mercy,
For the oppressed and the needy.

Help me O Lord God Almighty,
To walk with you in humility;
Set my hardened heart aflame,
To bless others in your name.

With what shall I come before the Lord
and bow down before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt
offerings, with calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousand
of rams, with ten thousands rivers of
oil? Shall I offer my firstborn for my
transgression, the fruit of my body for
the sin of my soul?
He has showed you, O mortal, what is
good. And what does the Lord require of
you? To act justly and to love mercy and
to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:6-8
