Why Should I ... When God Is ... ?! + PRAYER: Lord, Let My Faith Shine!




Why
Should I Walk In The Sight
Of These
My Blind 
AND
Dying Eyes
When
I Can Walk In  The Faith Of Him
Who Is My Soul's Delight?

Why
Should I Trust To Luck
Of Spurious Pedigree
When
I May Walk In The Blessing Of Him
Who
On Calvary
Cruelly Died To Save Me?

Why
Should I Cast Away My Confidence
When
Great Recompense
Is Nigh At The Door
To Try Treats That Cannot Last
AND
That Only Serve To Be The Leading Reins
To The Realm Of The Outcast?

I Have Waited This Long
So
I Can Wait
- One Moment More -
For 
HIM
Because He 
- Who Has Promised To Be True To Me -
IS
The God Of All Graces
NOT
The Lord Of The Con Men
With Back To Front Sideways Faces!


PRAYER:

Lord, 
I Love You!
I Honor You True!
I Am A Humble Servant
Working Faithfully For You!

Teach Me, Lord!
Feed Me!
Guide Me In The Right
And
Help Me Ever To Do Right
Even When Wrong Doing
Fantastically Pays!


Help Me To Completely Trust You, Lord
My Beloved Father In Heaven

Especially In Those Times When
The Carnal Man In Me Says "No!"
And

Help Me To Tell
In Faith
- With Compassion -
The Good News Story To Others
My Unknown Friends
And
Not Yet Met
And
Soon To Be - In The Lord -
Sisters
And
Brothers!

Lord, Let My Faith Shine!
Help Me To Walk True

Even If I Walk Alone
And
I Beseech You
To Remember Me

When You Come To Take The Saints
To Their Forever Home!


I Love You, Lord!
Please Let These Words Be True
For
My Sins I Confess
And
I Do Repent Of All My Wrong Doing
Because I Desire To Live
With You
Who Loves Me True!
Please Restore Me

Unto The Joy
Which - In You -
Is Without Alloy!


Teach Me, Lord
To Know My End
And
Show Me The Measure Of My Days
For I Am Frail
And
Without You
I Shall Not Stand!
Upon You, Lord
I Totally Depend!


Pity Me, Lord
And
Hear
And
Answer
And
Show Mercy
For In Jesus Christ's Holy Name I Plead!
AMEN.
