Lord, Take Away My Idols

Lord, take away my idols,
Carved deep within my soul.
The ones made out of greed,
That make me lose control.

The ones that fill my heart,
That  take me away from You.
Idols in my daily life,
That keep me from what is  true.

Idols of my dreams,
That haunt my waking hours.
Idols of my  faith,
That take away Your power.

The ones others put before  me,
The ones I chose to follow.
Idols of my mind and thoughts,
That  leave me void and hollow.

Idols of this day and age,
That creep into  my path.
Idols of my deepest thoughts,
That will lead me to Your wrath.

Idols that I hide,
In the dark closets of my life.
Idols  from my past,
That gives me so much strife.

The ones I use to  adorn,
The outer part of me.
The ones keeping me from,
Getting down on  bended knee.

Lord, take away my idols,
I leave them at Your  door.
For You are the only One,
I need to worship and  adore.

Ezekiel 14:3
