Chain of Burden
Open my heart, Lord and look inside
Fill it with humility and not with pride.
Show me a door Lord ,that I can explore
Set me among those who are humble and poor.
Riches and spoil are portions of disaster.
I long for the bread that is served by my Master.
Pride is an arrogant hanging chain
around a neck that causes much pain.
Lift me up Father, and bring me to a place
where I am surrounded by your love & grace.
Set me upon land where I can be good
Obeying your laws as I know I should.
Guard my lips every moment of each day
Rid me of pride in all I do and say .
Psalm 37:6 Therefore pride is a chain
about their neck; Violence covereth them
as a garment.
Inspired by Him.
