Lord, You have always spoken
when time was ripe;
and though You be silent how,
today I believe.
Lord, I have nothing;
help me to give even what I do not have.
Lord, I feel nothing;
help me not to be jealous, that You may
use me to touch others’ hearts.
Lord, I am weary;
help me to remember that You
have been weary, too.
Lord, I need refreshing;
help me to refresh others and to forget
about my own needs.
Lord, I can’t see the way ahead;
help me not to get in the way
of those who can.
Lord, I am disappointed;
help me not to bring disappointment to others.
Lord, I have no one to help me;
help me to trust in You.
Lord, I can’t see You;
yet You see me –
help me to remember that.
Lord, I am not worthy to receive You,
but only say the word and I shall be healed.
I will listen to what God the Lord says;
he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants—
but let them not turn to folly.
Surely his salvation is near those who fear him,
that his glory may dwell in our land.
