Ruin Me

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a high and lofty throne, and His robe filled the temple. Seraphim were standing above Him; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another:
Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of Hosts;
His glory fills the whole earth.
The foundations of the doorways shook at the sound of their voices, and the temple was filled with smoke.
Then I said:

Woe is me, for I am ruined,
because I am a man of unclean lips
and live among a people of unclean lips, [and] because my eyes have seen the King,
the LORD of Hosts.
Then one of the seraphim flew to me, and in his hand was a glowing coal that he had taken from the altar with tongs. He touched my mouth [with it] and said:

Now that this has touched your lips,
your wickedness is removed,
and your sin is atoned for.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying:

Who should I send?
Who will go for Us?
I said:

Here I am. Send me.

Isaiah 6:1-8


Woe to me! I am unclean!
A sinner found in Your presence!
I see You, seated on Your throne--
Exalted, Your glory surrounds You!
Now the plans that I have made
Fail to compare
When I see Your glory

Ruin my life,
The plans that I've made!
Ruin desires for my own selfish gain!
Destroy the idols that have taken Your place,
Till it's You alone I live for,
You alone I live for!

Holy, Holy, is the Lord Almighty!
Holy is the Lord!
Holy, Holy is the Lord Almighty!
Holy is the Lord!

- Jeff Johnson, Ruin Me
