Treasure Island

Kingsley Olaleye Reuben


You Send I


I know my person is far from what you designed it to be
So reset it, remould it and make me free
You send me into the fray to speak
Please make me strong, let me not be weak
For I am nothing without your power and grace
You bring salvation and pour on evil disgrace
I am your humble ambassador of your love
Please strengthen me holy God above
For I feel weak when I should be strong
And my voice withers when I behold wrong
Mighty father bolster me in your way
Teach me your word and what to say
Please mighty Lord be gentle for I am so feeble before thee
Open my heart to accept your spirit, my eyes so I can see
I am scared that I might step wrongly when I do as you say
So soften those I speak to; mighty, small, young and grey
Anoint me so I may be fit enough to serve you and talk
Like a child I am scared but so eager to walk
So Mighty father hold my hand so I will be confident and bold
And I will proclaim thy works and sing my testimony till I am old

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
