I Need Truth

I need truth to flood my soul
Exposing all deceit and lies
All falseness and hypocrisy
The subtle untruths I have prized

Though it leave me bleeding
As the truth begins to pierce my heart
Help me Lord to love this truth
That purifies the hidden parts

Silence me should I protest
And justify my falsity
Bring to light and then to death
All deceit You find in me

Bind me with Your cords of love
As You wield Your Holy Sword
And cut away all pretense in me
By the Spirit and the Word

”Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” John 17:17
