I Heard Your Voice, By Kathryn Yazzie 11/5/1971 - Poem by Kathryn Tyler King
I heard Your voice in the morning.
Yea, Lord I will go this day in faith.
Trusting and leaning upon Your arms
for the strength and courage. I love You
Lord, my master, my Lord, my all
Yea Lord, I go back to the home You have.
I will serve thee from morning till night.
I will serve thee with all my soul and mind.
I will serve thee, Lord, for You are my strength.
In You will I find wisdom and knowledge.
In faith I leave this home so rare
To travel the road with my child.
I will seek always Your Face.
Search me and know my heart is Yours.
Here am I Lord and I go for You have spoken.
I leave this valley of love and comfort rest
To dwell again with my husband dear.
I will set my eyes upon him in love
And grant to me the spirit of calm and peace.
For the days to come are great in thy sight.
Lord, know that thy servant has heard
and today I walk and run in faith,
knowing all the power in heaven is mine
To do thy will these Last Days.
Lord, my will is to do thy will at all times.
Thank you Lord for the closeness I've felt.
The nearness of Your warm and kind spirit.
I thank You dear Lord for all You've done,
To grant me the needed refreshment and love.
Thank You my sweet Lord. You are worthy!
Lord, my heart aches to be back with Lemuel,
My king on earth, my strong husband,
whose spirit is turning again to You.
Praise God! Thank you for your work in him.
You are worthy of all my Praise and Worship.
Lord, as I leave here, grant me this prayer,
That this family will have one mind
And may it be Your mind that dwells here.
That there may be growth together in love.
And that You will be given the honor and glory.
