Lord, you know me

Lord, you know me.
I am so set in my ways at times.
I am stubborn, self-centered and so sure I know it all.
I must make you angry at times.
Yet you love me,
   you are sorry for me,
   you want to give me so much.
Give me the grace to admit when I am wrong,
   to turn from my self
   and accept your love,
   your way,
   your will.

Margaret Cundiff, 1932-2011, Church of England minister
