MY PRAYER, by            
First Line: Jesus, son of god, my saviour
Last Line: Amen.
Subject(s): Prayer


Jesus, Son of God, my Saviour,
In humility I must
Bow before You, and beseech Your
Help. Oh, help me to be just.

I would be more kind; more gentle;
And more faithful to my trust.
More like You, oh, gentle Jesus;
More forgiving, and more just.

Little stings that grieve and pain me;
Snubs that bow me to the dust;
Help me rise above the insults;
Help, oh, help me to be just.

Give me understanding, mercy;
Keep me free from selfish lust;
Give me breadth, and depth of kindness;
Help, oh, help me to be just.

I would be as cooling shelter;
As a rock in weary dust.
I would be what You would have me
Be. Oh, help me to be just.
Amen.
