Correct My Soul


I am born again through Baptism
Jesus is his name and Father I call him
I am at the altar being prayed for
Preparation I did not receive before
In church I see and hear the unknown
As I wait to receive such gift
Again the enemy comes with an interception
I've been told that it is simple
All I have to do is praise and worship
I have to open my heart and let him in
I request the Holy Ghost
But I am not ready
My heart is open but my mine is closed
I am joyful at his presence
Even though I only see, hear, and believe
I will not give up because I already won
In the beginning my victory was given by Jesus
The Holy Ghost, I will receive!
Although I know I am trying to hard
In the hunt for the Holy Spirit I am seeking love
Just do not seek with doubt and hatred
My mind fights me at all times; it is a great warfare
I know that I won in Jesus name
So Lord, please correct my soul

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
