Vessel...a Morning Prayer





Lord,
Of all my dreams and my ambitions
Be they virtuous or grand
Let me desire most of all
To be a vessel in your hands

In all my gains and all my losses
May I ever bear in mind
That it is beneath life’s crosses
That your tender strength I find

Through life’s footfalls and its follies
When despair seeks to prevail
Let me cling to heaven’s promises
Of A Love that will not fail

Lord,
This is the day you’ve made
As its moments sweep time’s sand
Let me desire most of all
To be a vessel in your hands
