Let me be as meek as a drop of water
Among the great multitude of drops in Your sea,
So that I have no power to oppose
The Superior path You have planned for me.
Let me see the poorness of my spirit
That brings me down on bent knee,
Knowing that I deserve absolutely nothing,
Not even that which meets my needs.
Let me always feel the pain of mourning,
Known by a heart that never grows cold,
And an eye never blind to injustice,
As only a caring spirit may know.
Let my responses be as merciful
As a rain shower in a time of drought
So no one in need that You show to me
Must know the hardship of going without
Let my thoughts be as pure of heart
As Your loyal Job in his time of need,
So that even in the grip of despair
Sin will not have the slightest hold on me
Let me always be hungry for Your Word
As it does so little up on a shelf
But when studied, it nourishes my life
And reveals there is more to days then self
Let me never refuse to boldly share
The One True Faith that I have as a Gift,
So that the Word I hear, is what I speak
And the Holy Spirit empowers each breath
Father, these are the Blessings that I seek
The ones that Jesus praised above all
In Jesus’ name, I ask and shall receive
So from Your favor I shall never fall.
