Make me true

Make me true, O God, inside and out,
With a single eye, and undiluted light,
An undivided heart, where grows no doubt,
A joyful walk by faith, and not by sight.

Bring me low, O God, that I might know
The humble mind of Christ, with steady hand
To serve the undeserving, freely bestow
A blessing, write my many works in sand.

Sweep me up, O God, higher, to find
Where I have laid my treasured goods, my soul,
My hope, my time, my all — from heaven bind
Them all as one in Christ to make me whole.

If this prayer was a blessing to you, please share it with others.
