All day long... Poem by David Lessard

Lord, take this day and bless it,
make my path both sure and straight;
take away the sins and sorrow,
take away the ugly hate.

Take this day and make it shine,
make my words come true with love;
take off the blindfold of my eyes,
so I can behold, the stars above.

So I can see the trail to take,
so I can walk the narrow road;
you are the atlas of my strength,
you lighten up, my every load.

Lord, take this night and bless it,
your light will be enough;
your arms will be sufficient,
when the way becomes too rough.

Take my heart and bless my soul,
as I sing your old, sweet song;
as I embrace your word, the truth,
every day and all day long.
