Nothing was I ere He found me,
Hungry and lost and mired in sin.
He called out my name and He saved me
And carried me home to the King

A home in His palace I'm granted,
Garments of white to cover my skin.
The stains are removed forever,
Washed by the hands of the King.

He loves me, though I don't deserve it,
Unworthy and poor, yet forgiven,
What blessings He pours upon me,
Being a child of the King!

I bow my heart to my Master;
My feet ready to fulfill His plan;
I offer my all with hands open wide;
My life I give to my King.

With eager eyes, always upon His face.
Watching for only a nod from Him;
Grateful and willing to do my best,
Faithfully serving my King,

Humbly I'm poised at His royal feet,
Content to stay close and learn of Him,
Waiting, listening for a task to do,
Wanting to serve my King.

Secure and loved, never to stray,
With nothing of me and all of Him,
I rest in the care of my Saviour,
Loving and serving my King.

Beautiful, and powerful. Thanks for sharing. God bless~

This has such a beautiful tender message about our service to our King. Your word choices are perfect. I'd love to hear this sung. Or it would be perfect read along side the song, "His yoke is easy, His burden is light." Very nice!

Serving the Master, the best job ever! I agree with Beth, this could be a song. Beautiful!

Beth, I'm getting quite a collection of "songs" that need tunes. How are you at composing?
Beth LaBuff 02/09/12
Hey, Vonnie. :) I've done a little, but I thought you had a son that was a songwriter. :)
Yvonne Blake 02/09/12
Yes, I do (Micah writes great songs) . . . but he's got a different style, and I think he prefers writing his own words to his tunes.
