Holy God: My Prayer

Holy
By My people I will be
Regarded as Holy
Thus saith the LORD

And thus shall it ever be
Forbid it, LORD, that Your Name
Your Holy Name
Be profaned by Your people
That they trample it down
Down, down,
Deep into the dust
Forbid it, LORD, forbid it
Let it never be done

Thus saith the LORD
And thus shall it ever be
Forbid it, LORD, that Your ways
That Your ways be declared evil
By the lips of Your people
Your people, Your people,
Whom You have welcomed in Your sanctuary
Forbid it, LORD, forbid it
Let it never be done

Thus saith the LORD
And thus shall it ever be
Forbid it, LORD, that Your love
That Your love be thought cheap and open
By those who claim to bend the knee
Bend the knee, bend the knee
And then they leave and live as they please
Forbid it, LORD, forbid it
Let it never be done

Thus saith the LORD
And thus shall it ever be
Forbid it, LORD, that Your character
Your character be marred and distorted
By those You love
Love, love so deeply
That You call them Your own
Forbid it, LORD, forbid it
Let it never done

“1Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it and laid incense on it and offered unauthorized fire before the Lord, which he had not commanded them. 2And fire came out from before the Lord and consumed them, and they died before the Lord. 3Then Moses said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord has said: ‘Among those who are near me I will be sanctified, and before all the people I will be glorified.’” And Aaron held his peace.” ~Leviticus 10
