A Prayer Song

Father, let me live, Help me freely give, As I have received from You, Let me thus forgive. Father, let me love, Like a gentle dove, As You have showered on me, From heaven above. Father, let me learn, To Your Word return, As You have desired for me, Let my desires burn. Father, let me know, Where I need to go, As You are my only Guide, Help me in You grow. Father, let me pray, Come to You each day, As You have taught me with love, Let me walk Your Way. 16/08/17 Syllable count: 5.5.7.5

I really like the form and what you have done with it. This is an uplifting, moving prayer and I suppose more of us are using this form than really know. Thanks for the insight and learning.
