Hear me, O Lord, I look to you
– the tasks before me I can’t do
unless you help, and come to me –
and yours the victory will be.
Your enemies and mine lurk near,
but you, my call will always hear.
Instruct me that I may display
your truth, your light, your life, your way.
Give me an undivided heart,
and cleanse me, keep me set apart
– confusion’s mire surrounds, they need
a beacon to life’s Rock to lead.
Prosper eternal plans of good,
and help me do the things I should.
Lord, comfort me, that they will see
that you, the King show grace to me.
see Psalm 86
