Allow me to kneel before Your throne
To press my forehead to the ground,
So I may be humbled in Your sight
My sins revealed in Your light.
Forgive me Jesus for the hurt I’ve caused,
My snippy tongue and attitude
Forgive me of any thought of flight
To slip away in darkest night.
Wash my heart, mind, body, soul
Cleanse me of the sins I must own
As the waves outside sweeps in and out
Leaving treasures taking away the work of doubt.
Let Your grace rain down as waves come in
Forgive me, free me from the dark within.
Restore my sight to the path set as my route,
Remind me what this journey is about.
Praises I offer You from my very soul
Gratitude for Your love for me
Stroked again is Your fire within my heart
Lead me, guide me, help me do my part
To see the wounded sisters and brothers
Who seek You though they be unaware
Restore to them their child – like faith and heart
Give them strength to avoid Evil ‘ s darts.
Believers, Christians we have this to do
Go out and take Your message forth
To all people, all men, all nooks of this earth
Share Your message of a second birth
How You and only You alone
Can fill the hole in aching hearts
You alone Sweet Jesus see our true worth
Filling us with love, joy, peace and mirth.
Thank You Lord for hearing me
Even more for forgiving me
Thank You for living inside this heart
Thank You for all the blessings You impart.
Walk with me today let me follow close
Your steps before me let me see the most.
You are the One True and Living God
In Heaven above and on this earthly sod.
Very nice, Donna. I think this is the cry of every Christian’s heart – or at least should be. You write with such feeling.
Thank you June! Love poetry & how much feeling can come out in those inspired moments.
