Morning Prayer





Lord, let me look
Not into the morrow
Straining to suffer
A shadow of naught
Sufficient this day
Is its joy and sorrow
Life’s benevolence
Tenderly wrought

Lord, let me seek
Not tomorrow’s treasure
Of provision, strength
But oh Lord, I pray
Open my eyes
To love’s moment-measure
And render to me
What I need today

Lord, let me trust
Not buckling beneath
Burdens of worry
Trouble and despair
But Lord, let me journey
One foot then the other
Content in the moment
Because You are there
