A Monday Morning Love Song/Prayer


Oh, keep us kind and humble, Lord; love has no in between
And keep the Prize we strive toward something man has not seen
My, but the mouth is skilled at soothing guilt with verbose art
Forgetful often, that you see the intent of the heart

Lord, give us love that does not seeks its own indulgent way
But stir in us surrender's goal to serve You every day
Give us the peace that passes understanding as we yield
Entrusting to Your perfect love those things not yet revealed

The spirit is a willing courtier, it boasts great plan
The flesh is weak; its choice the voice that exposes the man
Do not be wise in your own eyes; the ancient proverb warns
But fear the Lord, (the One who wore not roses, but the thorns)

Love is patient and kind and does not seek its own delight
It does not count the cost but makes its boast Your grace and might
Lord, until faith is sight make us a vessel in Your hands
Fulfill through us the Love that folly oft misunderstands

Anoint each breath we take with faith's earnest humility
Lord, with each step make us aware of that last Destiny
How Moment is the module that transports Undying Soul
Toward the place where Perfect Love unveils the holy Whole

The True-love Challenge;

 Love is patient,
love is kind.
It does not envy,
it does not boast,
 it is not proud.
It is not rude,  
it is not self-seeking,
  it is not easily angered, 
 it keeps no account of wrongs. 
Love takes no pleasure in evil,
but rejoices in the truth.…
1 Cor.13:4-6
