Lent 2017: Your Word

img_0606Help me Lord
To find the right balance
Between earthly saintliness
And practical usefulness.
Help me to listen to you,
To make time to rest in your word
And not just to be rushing around
For fear of running aground.

The seas are high,
The current of life is strong,
Strong enough to carry me astray,
Far from your pathway.
Your word is the chart
I need to follow,
It is a lamp for my feet:
You make me complete.

You will help me,
To ensure that I
Am neither useless nor too saintly
So that I can find my place.
You will help me,
Your word will guide me,
I will trust in you
Because your help is true.
