Supplication - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

Show me how to live, oh Lord
guide what I must do
to be useful and to serve
those I meet and You

Let the sun alight my path
dewdrops quench my thirst
may tall trees afford cool shade
when in heat immersed

Show me how to live, oh Lord
bless my every hour
days are long and nights are hard
Lord, I need your power

Like the lilies in the field
clothe me with your love
share the only thing I need:
blessings from above

Show me how to live, oh Lord
guide what I must do
to be useful and to serve
those I meet and You.

Topic(s) of this poem: request, need for human, prayer, prayers, helpless
