​The Empty Vessel

This song is by Rick Wakeman and appears on the album Prayers (1993).

Behold, Lord, an empty vessel that needs to be filled
My Lord, fill it
I am weak in the faith; strengthen me
I am cold in love; warm me and make me fervent,
That my love may go out to my neighbour
I do not have a strong and firm faith;
At times I doubt and am unable to trust you altogether
O Lord, help me
Strengthen my faith and trust in you
In you I have sealed the treasure of all I have
I am poor; you are rich and came to be merciful to the poor
I am a sinner; You are upright
With me, there is abundance of sin;
In you is the fullness of righteousness
Therefore I will remain with you, of whom I can receive,
But to whom I may not give.
