A Christian poem of faith.

O Lord, I have purposed in my spirit
to sing of Your greatness and mercy!
Before You I humbly bow and kneel;
with my tongue, I exalt only Thee!

The enemy constantly surrounds me;
my joy they look to slyly steal.
You are my Maker and I'm the clay,
previously molded upon Thy Potter's wheel.

Since Your words drip from my heart,
no longer can I remain silent.
Use me to write this poetry, filled…
with messages that are "heaven sent".

Stand mightily over this blue planet,
let Your shadow cover this globe;
remind everyone of Your Presence;
clothe Your people with ecclesiastical robes.

Being one of Your Children, I too serve You,
as a sanctified priest of Your holy nation.
Knowing that my identity is found in You,
I'll never consider yielding… my determination.

Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
Psa 23, 57; Jer 18:6; Isa 61:10, 64:8
