My Prayer - Poem by John G. Nelson
O Jehovah, my God of comfort
Do give ears to my humble prayer
& to thee my own cry will come,
thy mercy, thy kingdom ‘d come.
O Jah, thy name ‘d stand forever
& do forgive me my own errors,
& those erring & making fool of me
help me run the race of endurance.
O Jah, so not to forget thy doing,
Help me with all my heart to yearn
that my faith & service may grow,
& thy blessing, kindness & mercy rise
The days ‘re hard, rotten & wicked
Foes ‘re well aware of my weaknesses
O God, help me to fend these enemies,
empower to eat thy words days & night.
for all thy gifts & undeserved kindness,
all sweet bread & wine lay at my table.
All the weeping, wonders & mercies
My heart give thank to thee.
In Jesus name! Amen
