Give My Heart Wings - Poem by Imogene Alberta Landers

Give my heart wings Lord ­
Let me soar above the teeming crowds
And let me lose myself in the Vastness of your universe.
As I fly may I over come all the bitterness that life can bring.
Forgetting myself as I float in your love.
Let me rest in your presence for awhile, and make me ready to
come back into myself, armed with some of the attributes of you.
Let me lose my selfishness and take
on the humble cloak of humility.
Serving those who need help so desperately,
that all they can do is reach
out a trembling hand to me.
Expecting a kind word, a smile, or help to lift their heavy load.
Make me a blessing to those I meet everyday,
Be they friend or foe, black or white, rich or poor ­
For we are all one in His sight,
No one is better than the rest.
