 Refine Me by Jennifer Knapp


[b]Refine Me[/b]
[i]by Jennifer Knapp[/i]

I come into this place, burning to receive your peace
I come with my own chains, from wars I fought for my own selfish gains

You're my God and my father, I've accepted your son
But my soul feels so empty now, what have I become?

Lord...
Come with your fire, burn my desires
Refine me
Lord...
My will has deceived me, please come free me
Refine me

My heart can't see, when I only look at me
My soul can't hear, when I only think of my own fears.

And they are gone in a moment, you're forever the same
Why did I look away from you, how can i speak your name?

Lord...
Come with your fire, burn my desires
Refine me
Lord...
My will has deceived me, please come free me
Come rescue this child, for I long to be reconciled to you...

It's all I can do, to give my heart and soul to you
and pray..... and pray..... oh I will pray...

Lord...
Come with your fire, burn my desires
Refine me
Lord...
My will has deceived me, please come free me
Come rescue this child, for I long to be reconciled to you...

Refine me... Refine me...
Refine me... Refine me...

 Re: Refine Me by Jennifer Knapp

This song a dear sister in Christ has given to me and has been a great blessing to hear and apply to my life. It has been a prayer of mine to God to refine and melt my heart from all the dross, unbelief, fear, selfishness, so that my heart is purely devoted to Him. I want to be a broken man before God allowing Christ to shine through me. To be Christ-Like in everything I do. What a prayer to pray, if you can get your hands on this song it will minister to you.

 Re:

Concur; she is great.

Our CCM band covers her and Bryan Duncan's version of his 'Love Takes Time'. Or we try to! :-P

The song lyrics of Refine really illustrate the fact that we cannot do this all on our own, and both songs speak of the frustrations that thankfully, we can bring to Abba, Daddy.

 Re: Refine Me by Jennifer Knapp

There have been 3 Jennifer Knapp songs off her first album, [i]Kansas[/i], that have been REALLY ministering to me the past few weeks, [b]"Refine Me"[/b] being one of the them. Here are the other two:

[b]Trinity[/b]
You in the mirror starin' back at me.
O' conscience let me be
To the pure, all things are pure.
To those who defiled unbelieving, nothing is pure.
Their minds, their conscience defiled.
They profess to know God. But deceive him by deeds all the while.

Where do I stand on the rock or in the sand?
O' Holy Spirit won't you help me understand
Holy spirit won't you say a prayer for me?
With your groanings.
My mind, my conscience defiled!
Send the blood of the Lamb, don't leave me in exile.

What was the promise on the Cross of Calvary? Confess the Lord and the truth shall set you free
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
Renew a steadfast spirit within me.
To my prayers You've always given heed.
Blessed be thy God.
Who never turned away from me.
Hid his face from all my sin, forgot my iniquity.
Raise your hands sing praises to the Lord.
He's the Kind and He'll reign forevermore. He died on the cross of Calvary.
He died to save a wretch like me!

[b]Martyrs and Thieves[/b]
There's a place in the darkness I use to cling to,
That presses harsh hope against time.
In the absence of martyrs there's a presence of thieves,
Who only want to rob you blind.
They steal away any sense of peace,
Though I'm a king, I'm a king on my knees.
And I know they are wrong when they say I am strong,
As the darkness covers me.

So I turn on the light and reveal all the glory, I am not afraid,
To bear all my weakness, knowing in meekness,
I have a kingdom to gain.

Where there is peace and Love in the Light in the Light, I am not afraid
To let your light shine bright in my life
In my life.

There are ghosts from my past who have owned more of my soul
Than I thought I had given away.
They linger in closets and under my bed
And in pictures less proudly dis-played.
A great fool in my Life I have been.
Have squandered til pallid and thin.
Hung my head in shame and refused to take blame
From darkness I know I've let win.
Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
