Thy Spirit


Thy spirit, I plea thee, thy spirit,
In weariness, let me replenish strength
When my foes advance, that I bear it
Thy word, at the ready, in its sheath;
Whether it is that I kneel or stand
Be always near and answer my cry
As I thirst, your ways, to understand
Please bear me up and help me try
These grueling hours of till and ill
Let me find thy spirit and give
My fears and doubts up for thy will
And be steadfast that I may live
