“Give me an undivided heart”

At Emmanuel Westbury on Sunday Julian brought to us God’s ‘cure for a divided heart’ from Psalm 119:113-120, helping us learn to say with the psalmist “I hate double-minded people, but I love your law.”  It reminded me of this song that I’ve come across recently and is often stuck in my head (in a good way!).  I’ve found it helpful to keep meditating on Sunday’s sermon and it’s helping me pray and plead with God in light of it.  Have a listen (lyrics below):

Undivided by Rob Smith

Give me an undivided heart
That I might fear your name
Teach me to walk in righteous paths
And follow in your ways
For you are gracious and forgiving
Hear, O Lord, and answer me

Give me an undivided mind
That I might love your word
Help me to hunger for your voice
And know your spirits sword
For you are good, your truth unchanging
Life is found in serving you

Undivided – I want to live for you
Single minded – all that I say, all that I do
Sanctify me take me and make me new
That I might live for Christ my lord

Give me an undivided love
For all that you desire
Make me a living sacrifice
Ignite in me your fire
For you O Lord are God eternal
All my ways are known to you

Undivided – I want to live for you
Single minded – all that I say, all that I do
Sanctify me, take me and make me new
That I might live for Christ, my Lord

Undivided – counting my gains as loss
Single minded – whatever the pain, whatever the cost
Sanctify me, help me take up my cross
And live for Him who died for me
