Give Me The Power - Poem by Gert Strydom

Give me the power,
the will and insight dear Lord, to know
that I can measure no friend to Your faithfulness
and the sneaky underhanded deceit
that people did do to me
let me forget it and their somewhat friendship.

Let me as human being be sincere and true to You
and all of my friends
but above all of these things please continue to be
the best friend to me
and where I do stand
in the midst of the most terrible time of my life
let me daily without any conceit
find new courage out of Your word,

where I am blind in the well of ignorance,
help me that I can see the truth
and have insight into knowledge,
let the light of your truth dedicate me to Your service
and do bring me unto what life is really about
into a greater meaning of it,

to only discover the depth of it
and without the constraints of my own will
to give it to others with selfless love
and let me realize that You do cover
the sins of every one of us with Your blood.
