Sanctify us O LORD

 

From the cess-pool of madness and iniquity

In the human heart,

Sanctify Mankind, O Lord!

Pride, Hate, Selfishness,

Greed, Envy, Jealousy, Lust

Wrath, Hypocrisy, Vindictiveness;

Putrid, foul, despicable mess

O LORD, in thy Mercy, cleanse.

 

Lord, consume Manís inordinate sins

With YOUR HOLY fire,

O LORD, cover all with the SACRED BLOOD of the LAMB

And by YOUR POWER,

Reveal the JOY of Sanctification,

Put all right by the SAVIOURís Justification;

Enable all to rejoice in YOUR WONDROUS SALVATION.

 

O GREAT and COMPASSIONATE GOD, wisely endeavouring

To save MAN from the pitfalls

That would plunge them into the horrendous abyss

Of their own making;

Do we all realise the TRUTH about the HOLY CROSS

The immense LOVE that paid the price for sins

Our HOLY SAVIOUR making possible

Reconciliation with Almighty GOD

And an eternity Man cannot attain by his own effort.

 

LORD, by YOUR GRACE, make this change in Man, turning

Pride into Humility

Hate into Loving Compassion

Wrath into forgiveness

Intemperance into Self Discipline;

Rebellion into Obedience

Greed into Generosity

Jealousy into Trust;

Envy into Self-motivation

Selfishness into Self-giving

Hypocrisy into Honesty;

 

Take all Manís imperfections ,O LORD

Mould all into YOUR image;

Making all perfect

Like the Heavenly Father is PERFECT;

Let Mankind be ready when CHRIST comes

To embrace Eternity,

Like children,beloved by YOU, eternally.
