The Center

By Jeff Shumate

 

Dying to oneself,

The onslaught of pride a war inside,

Dying to oneself,

The center is I,

I don’t want to die,

What a cry, yes a battle cry,

I don’t want to die,

Christ, I see,

Centered in me,

Make me free from I,

It’s so hard to die, from being I,

Centered,

Make me Christ centered Oh lord!
