Lyrics

Make Me Willing
(A Song for the Persecuted Church)

Am I willing to be misunderstood so that others might understand?
Am I willing to follow after Jesus, not in the steps of man?
Am I willing to be rejected so that others can be embraced?
Am I willing to fall on my knees and seek my Savior’s face?

Refrain
Lord make me willing to be willing
I need Your Spirit to work in me
Apart from Jesus, I have no power
To walk in the truth of my identity
Lord make me willing

Am I willing to be made low so that others might be lifted up?
Am I willing to empty myself to fill another's cup?
Am I willing to get myself dirty so that others can be made clean?
Am I willing to be hidden, humble, and unseen? (Refrain)

Am I willing to be broken so that others can be made whole?
Am I willing to seek Christ’s kingdom and not my own goals?
Am I willing to be thought a fool so that others can become wise?
Am I willing to set my sights on my heavenly prize? (Refrain)

Am I willing to be wronged so that others can be made right?
Am I willing to lose the battle so that Christ can win the fight?
Am I willing to have myself bound so that others can be set free?
Am I willing to glorify God and stop seeking it for me? (Refrain)
