A Servant's Prayer

A Servantís Prayer

O Lord, my transgressions speak out against me
at times it so seems as if they call to me by name
Conviction comes descending on me so strongly
until, regrets of my heart burn as a searing flame

Lord, youíre a refuge in times of sorrowful strife
I seek to find forgiveness at your throne of grace
Bowing down at your feet I feel thy merciful love
the sweetness of mercy, showing upon your face

Lord, help me not disgrace, that throne of glory
nor take for granted, those hands scarred by nails
The same hands that hold mine once held spikes
still the glory and might of God, forever prevails

This old world heaps itís pain and sorrows on me
at times it seems that those wounds, are incurable
When my pace is labored by those heavy burdens
I know your grace remains sufficient and durable

Hear this weakened voice of thy servant, Oí Lord
place my form of flesh back on the potters wheel
Mold me, recreated me, oh my Blessed Redeemer
refill all those broken cracks, with a Heavenly zeal

Oh Lord, hear my voice of praise in the morning
listen closely for my call for help in the afternoon
When the misty shadows of evening, start falling
let me have night visions, of your returning soon

Conviction can be very powerful and thank God we feel convicted or we wouldn't know Him. Another beautiful work !
