PRAYER

PRAYER a Translation by Andre Kotze of Gebed by Koos du Plessis

				
Keep me close to all that’s humble	
Keep me in Your holy shade		
Grant that every earthly pursuit and fear			
finally disappear and fade

I have been down countless side-roads		
Lost my way for lack of light	
You have always come to fetch me again 
Make this, Lord, my final flight.

Every day is just a daydream		
Every room an empty hall		
Every earthly dream of riches and fame			
Just a shadow ‘gainst the wall

What I am is grace and gravel					
What I have is borrowed light					
I am thirsting for Your waters of rest					
Lord, oh lead me there tonight
