Love Of A Father - Poem by Dwayne Bailey

Baptize me oh Lord with fire,
test me to the very core;
Prove my love for you is true,
it's you alone whom I adore.

Chastise me when I sin,
show me how much you care;
Protect me when I am in danger,
help me with the burdons I bare.

And when Ive taken my last breath,
with life growing ever dim;
Please meet me at your holy gates,
and guide me safely in.
