In Thy Kingdom - Poem by Reginald Walker
Grant me, O lord
The strength to complete the tasks that you have placed before me.
Let me continue to toil yet one more day doing thy work.
Give me the courage to walk this path of righteousness.
Allow me to stay on it for thine sake and thine alone.
Fill me with the wisdom to understand the magnitude of your love.
It extends deeper than any pit of despair,
It reaches higher than any pinnacle of success I may be on.
Please, let me never forget you.
Without you, success is in vain.
Failure is imminent.
Life is empty.
However, with you
I can achieve anything I set my mind to,
As long as it is within your will.
For my hope and joy shall always be rooted and ground
In the revelation that as soon as this life ends
I will begin anew in thy kingdom.
