Lord Let My Focus Be On You

O Lord, please let my focus be on you Not on the things I feel that I must do My restless life so oft desired the new And quickly weary, many times withdrew My enterprise and office I resign My brilliant plans turned out to be benign A failed design embraced this heart of mine And my ambition I had drunk as wine A mission now provides me an escape A place to hide and feel I maybe safe In haste I fill my empty heart that gape And waste the grace my soul untried to shape I always thought I had the right to quit And never knew thy purpose would repeat Each tie I failed thou sifted me as wheat That I may learn to do thy will my meat O help me Lord each time when I give up To see thy goodness more than just enough
