Than

Supreme being loved by You over being used by You

More precious to behold Your glory than to keep Your glory

More true to humble myself under Your mighty hand than prove my way to the top


More valuable to be known by You than to be known because of You

More beautiful a single word You speak to me than a lifetime of enduring words of my own

Better to create with You than to speak alone


More perfect to place my imperfection in Your hands than perfection

More useful my weakness than that which I thought was my strength

More powerful to wait upon You than any other potency


Better Your fire burning in my eyes than a trillion fires kindled by me in this earth

Better the mystery of Your Spirit than paths known unending

Better the light of the glory of Your face than the brightness of my rising without You
