Lord, this day I didn’t do anything for Thee –
Forgive me, Lord, you know – how neglectful I can be.
Am I afraid to witness for fear that I may, somehow –
Be thought to be by others “holier than thou”?
On encountering others, Lord, who are so miserably bereft –
I feel compassion and tears for them, a need to share myself.
Lord, I know more is needed, more of me that I should do –
If I’m to walk along life’s way – HAND and HAND with YOU.
Silently I kneel, Dear Lord, beside my earthly bed –
But, within my heart is a void, because of words unsaid.
Lord, please give me wisdom to do my best –
And give me that special strength, needed to stand the test.
