A Prayer for Life



  John 13:34

Lord, let our longing be
Not for a world of things
But for eternity
And Heaven’s offerings

Oh Lord, shape our desires
Beyond this mortal dust
And fix our passion higher
Than earth’s visual lust

Oh Lord, we cannot know
The unknown of each hour
But where we go You go
Sustain us with Your power

Oh Lord, then let us prove
The hope wherein we trust
And teach us how to love
The way that You love us
