oh, i sense that God is near,
i sense His comfort to my fear,
still i pray for answers to appear.
for other souls, He must be closer friends,
for His Will to them, God routinely sends,
they so easily know what He intends,
which course to follow to reach holy ends.
so often i hear others say,
“the Lord speaks to me when i pray,
why the Lord told me jus’ the other day,
to spend all my money this-a-way!”
but for me, ‘tis not so plain,
to discern the sacred from profane,
for others truth comes down like rain,
in floods of words that sound insane.
i believe that God does answer prayer,
i know that God responds with care,
yet to speak for God, i seldom dare,
unless His wisdom with me did share.
so i will listen for God’s quiet Thought,
and i will do what God thinks i ought,
yet i shall not undo what God has wrought,
and with God’s written word, i shall cast my lot.
