When I’m Empty

It’s only when I’m empty
That Your holy power can flow
When I’m no longer in the way
That’s when Your glory grows

It’s only when I’m empty
Your love can flow full force
When I let go the rudder
You keep me on the course

It’s only when I’m empty
That understanding comes
When with worries and confusion
My mind no longer hums

It’s only when I’m empty
(Let bitterness depart)
That’s when You will complete
The healing of my heart

It’s only when I’m empty
That’s when I truly know
How gracious You have been to me
And I yield to You my soul
