Who Am I, Dear Jesus, If You Are Not?

Oh that I may know you more!
I hide in the shadow of your wings
Helpless and sometimes weary
Yet always in the knowledge
That it was finished at the cross
For I need not fear
And I need not weep
And I need not despair
Because in you
I find new hope,
Of a new life
For who am I if you are not?

I die daily
That I may let you be
Because I may be in the world
But I am not of it
In you I have found
Life of a new kind
Sometimes crushing
But its all for my good
That I may be more like you
Less like me
For who am I if you are not?

I am where I want to be
Outside of myself
I now cease to be
It is no longer about me
But more and more about you
Outside of my new self
I stagger in confusion
Lost and overcome
Because I must learn to let go
In you I find peace
Oh that I may know you more!
For who am I if you are not?
