Hold me, my Father

With Thy arms eternal and strong

It is in Thy loving arms

That I forever belong


Guide me, sweet Jesus

Along Thy perfect Way

I shall traverse Thy path

With Thee each day

Fill me, Holy Spirit

In my heart overflow

I lose myself in Thee

It is only Thee I know


Love me, precious Lord

With Agape surround me

Thy love is my meaning

Yea, the reason for me to be


Strengthen me, my Master

Against temptation and snare

Grant me discernment

That I am alert and aware


Lead me, my Shepherd

To pasture lovely and green

You lead me in righteousness

In Thy paths pristine


Reign in me, Eternal King

Rule over my heart and thought

I am completely Thine

For my life is blood-bought


Nourish me, Bread of Life

Thy Eternal Word does feed

You alone give me life, Lord

You alone fill every need


Refresh me, Living Water

Pour into my heart Thy streams

That I may burst with love

That in my eye Thy light beams


Accept me, precious Lamb

My life is an offering to Thee

You sacrificed Thyself for my life

I no longer live, but You in me


Use me, Eternal Potter

I am Thy creation, Thy jar

I go anywhere for Thee, Lord

Yea, I travel near or far


And wherever I go, please hold me

With Thy arms eternal and strong

For it is in Thy loving arms

That I forever belong

    Your poetry is always so beautifully written! This stanza caught my attention in the poem…
    Use me, Eternal Potter
    I am Thy creation, Thy jar
    I go anywhere for Thee, Lord
    Yea, I travel near or far

    He is our Eternal Potter forever shaping and molding us to His desire, if we let Him!
