Lest seeds of bitterness should start
And grow until their flowers bloom,
Then all my peace and calm consume.
I’m not alone in this endeavor
Because the Holy Spirit ever
Within my secret heart does dwell,
And there He guards it very well.
It’s He who does empower me
To be the person I should be.
He puts reminders in my way,
Encouragement for me to say
The words that He would have me speak,
Or even turn the other cheek
To one who’s acted with unkindness,
And then present a kind of blindness
To the faults in every neighbor.
He instructs me how to labor
In good deeds of Christian duty
And reveal my inner beauty
Through decisions that I make
And the actions that I take.
I’ve a fount of love that’s flowing
From the One who is all-knowing.
He loves me more than I deserve
And holds back nothing in reserve.
My heart I give Him in full measure,
Forever sentry of my treasure.
