A prayer of submission

O lover of my soul I come
All else I leave behind
The cares and woes of yesterday
The worries yet to come
I strip off bare before Thee Lord
My garments cast aside
My pride, my self, my vanity
I leave all these for Thee
Together we become as one
Our hearts and minds do meld
The doors betwixt have opened now
Our worlds collide as one
If only I could live with Thee
Enraptured twixt Thy loving arms
To never stir from Thee
To lay with Thee my lover sweet
Yet tenderly You whispered words
To stir my weary soul
A world awaits it needs Thy love
A world that knows no light
A people lost in darkness lie
A people wrought in cares
Besought by darkened monsters grim
They tear my very soul
A myriad of sirens sing
Each luring with their songs
They lead along forbidden paths
They seek to lure and snare
And so I now do understand
That though I'd rather stay
I must about my lover's work
I must bring more to Him
His cleansing power His love divine
His gentle ways to spread
I know what I must do for Him
His truth I spread abroad
To seek those caught in demonic grip
To free the ensnared soul
To open wide the darkened cell
To free captive there
To wipe the mists of doubt away
To fight the darkened gods
To clear away deceptions lies
To destroy vain deceits
To expose lure and snare
A warrior I am called to be
A soldier of His love
My power comes from far beyond
My love beyond the veil
The trials come as thick as hail
Though demonic forces fight
My faith will stand and I will fight
My lover by my side
Those moments spent in rapturous bliss
Those moments by His side
My strength I draw from loving Him
Within His gentle arms
He aids my hand
He gives me strength
He whispers in my ear
These times have drawn me to Him
We two are now as one
A solider, lover, bride, I be
My Lord hath full control
