May my first thought...

May my first thought in the morning be of You, Lord,
And the last thought as I'm drifting off to sleep.
May my mouth speak yours in every conversation,
and my eyes see you in all the faces of my day.
May my ears be wide awake to hear your whisper
and my touch be ready to contain your touch.

May I know rushing of the wind to be your Spirit
And remember that it's you who makes the rain.
May the desert sands in my life not confuse me,
And may you lead me over mountains sharp and steep.

May my roots grow deep to bedrock,
May my heart grow soft as newborn skin.
And forgiveness wide as all the oceans.
May my faith be as strong as purest diamonds
And grace be as sure as steel.

But,
Most of all,
May You be You.
All that You are in my life.
Forgive me for where I neglect you.
I repent once again...once again.
may my life be yours
Only Yours,
And may you--in my life--
Glorify YOU,
not
me.
