Music for Lent: Chris Bowater – Create in Me

Last night a wonderful song by British Songwriter and Worship Leader Chris Bowater came up in my iTunes shuffle.  It’s a song I’ve not listened to in sometime, and I’m guessing few Americans have ever heard it as Chris Bowater’s music is not well known in the US.

It makes a wonderful Lent prayer:

The song is Create in Me, from his 2009 album, Personal Worship


Here are the lyrics:

Create in me (Heart cry for purity)

By Chris Bowater / David Lyon

A clean and righteous spirit God
And blameless in Your sight

Renew in me
The child that longs to worship You
In honesty
Consumed by You alone

With a heart cry for purity
Living each day honouring You,
With a heart cry for purity
All sin and shame confessed

Restore to me
The joy that I have found in You
With praise O God
For all that You have done

May the steps that I take
And the choices I make
Reflect my heart for You
That loves the things that You love
And does what You would; do

Chris Bowater & David Lyon
