Thy Perfect Will

I wrote this poem February 12 & 13 1988. It’s a little off beat, I know. I can remember exactly what I felt when I wrote this.  Kind of bittersweet.  I’ll tell you about it some day.  Until then, enjoy.

Keep me in Thy Perfect Will

that I not be led astray.

I know I am a sinner

and have tried things my own say.

Without you there’s no guidance 

for my eyes are blind to thee.

So you left your word which lights the way

and shines ahead of me.

Your Spirit dwells within me

and has lead me to a place.

Where your love and mercy

has washed my sins by grace.

I love you Lord with all my heart

my soul and all my mind.

I long to see your face

So in your word I seek to find.

Quicken me in my heart

to hear your voice and obey.

Not my will but thine be done

when things don’t go my way.

Keep me in Thy Perfect Will

 that I be pleasing in your sight.

Too long have I done things my way

I now know your way’s right.
