Give Us, Keep Us

 
                  Keep us, Lord, hungry for truer things.
 
                 Keep us thirsty for life your living water brings.

 

 

Keep us searching for You, the Spring.
 
 
Keep us wanting to worship You, our King.
 
 
Give us ears that sense Your voice,
Eyes to see beyond the noise
 
Hands that serve and choose to rejoice
Hearts to bend, making a choice.
 
Give us, keep us, use us, teach us.

  1. I got goose bumps reading the last lines of the poem. “Hands that serve and choose to rejoice
    Hearts to bend, making a choice.” Oh my. Choosing to rejoice and bending hearts. Beautiful.
