    Use me, from the top of my head,
    To the sole of my feet,
    Every aspect and detail owns a role,
    In the fight to make Your kingdom complete.
    My head, that maybe in some way,
    I might lead others to find You,
    Or lead others to find them.
    My eyes, that I might see in the Spirit,
    To where the natural first took place,
    My nose that I might sense the stench,
    Of the enemy lurking around me.
    My voice, that I may proclaim Your word,
    Let it project, in song that Your Spirit may be heard.
    My tongue, that it may be tamed and control,
    And not used as a vessel of poison,
    Which annoys them,
    And keeps them from seeing You in me.
    My neck, that I may support and respect Your choice for the head,
    In every way…even if I don’t wish to.
    My hands, that I may turn my words into action,
    Into deeds, and plant my seeds.
    My legs, that I may stand boldly,
    In spite of who, in spite of what,
    And to stand in the midst of the storm.
    My feet, that I may swiftly go,
    To do what you have called me to perform,
    And to run the race even when it seems long,
    Not to finish first, but to finish strong.
    Use me…
    And You're the only One that I've allowed,
    To use me and I stand proud....
