The Task Set Before Me

Lord give me spiritual eyes that I may see
The things you have laid out for me.
I pray for the knowledge to know each day
What you would have me, to someone say.

There are things Lord I long to do
But your will first is what I say to you.
Make my life clean and pure
Help me the things of this world to endure.

Into my body I pray you place your breath
To give me strength to do my very best.
Help me not to judge my fellow man
But to work according to your blessed plan.

Place your love light in my eyes
So I may see and hear when someone cries.
Put me in the path of those that may stray
To let them know that love is on the way.
