Pride–an abomination to the Lord
I wish I wasn’t guilty
But I’ve been there before
Feeling so unworthy
My peace being destroyed
I repented and confessed
I have offended You
Those sins that You detest
You know they hurt me too
With pride comes disgrace
Humility brings God’s grace
I will not my God forsake
For someone’s earthly praise
The Word is full of warnings
Too serious to ignore
Lord, help me wake each morning
Today, pride I’ll abhor
I know the days I honor You
I feel that inner peace
Why would I let pride destroy
What You have given me
I need to pray that I don’t fall
An easy thing to do
The devil won’t come near me
If I’m glorifying You.

Being proud of a job well done is different than
the pride that keeps us away from God.
Boasting about myself? Not giving God the
glory? How foolish. What do I have that I have
My goal in life is to do God’s work.
Anything else is work in vain.
To be humble brings His grace.
The wicked, through the pride of his
countenance, will not seek after God: God is not
in any of his thoughts.
