My Prayer - Poem by Ysanna.D.E (Cherish) John
I, the blank, white paper lay
You, dear Lord, The Pen.
Write within my life I pray
A note of love to men.
May no blots be found in me,
May no blurs be seen.
So others through my life may see
That I, with you have been.
You have put within my soul
A peace that none can give.
You have cleansed and made me whole.
Dear Savior, through me live.
Let each message that I write
Be from your ink of love.
Let me inscribe only the right
And lift men eyes above.
Let each credit that is given
Be acknowledged to only you
Let the contents be of heaven
Let my preface and chapters be true.
May I publish your word of grace
On every page, each word
Your love, your light, your truth embrace,
I pray, Dear Sovereign Lord.
Until you should come back again
Keep me a faithful note ‘til then
To be an unfading message to men.
In Jesus' name, Amen
