About Me

Not My Will

| Friday, July 27, 2012 |

If I ask for things that I should not ask for
If I pray for things selfishly
If I ask for myself and not for my neighbor
Take this veil from my eyes and let me see

"Not my will, but thine be done," prayed Jesus.
May this same prayer be mine every day.
When this robe of flesh that I wear makes me falter
Guide my steps, hold my hand all the way.

If I love all my friends and serve them only
If I serve all the rich and not the poor
What good would I have done for Christ, my savior
Since my enemies do the same

If I murmur about the toil of my journey
If I seek for an easier way
If I worry because my load gets so heavy
Make me willing to walk in thy way.

When my pathway is dark and my heart is so weary
When I feel all alone in this fight
Come, dear Lord, walk with me along this pilgrim's journey
Be my compass, be my chart, be my guide.
