My Heavenly Father
and post notes and photos about your poem like Keith Trestrail.
He who fills all Heaven and Earth,
bore it richness where there was dearth.
To hear saints to your glory sing:
O Lord, grant me this one small thing!
He whose son died for my own sake
shall his return to this world make.
Now I wait for that day coming:
O Lord, grant me this one sure thing!
He who my solemn prayers receive,
in who I confide and believe.
Your love and grace to my heart cling:
O Lord, grant me this one dear thing!
He who foretold of toil and strife -
the promise of eternal life.
Baptism from a heavenly spring:
O Lord, grant me this one good thing!
He who raised us up from the dust,
who is merciful, wise, and just.
Peace to this world Your son will bring:
O Lord, grant me this one true thing!
He whose plan is now close at hand -
His people in the Promised Land.
Hark inside its walls the bells ring:
O Lord, grant me this one more thing!
He whose word is written in me
and whose kingdom I hope to see.
Salvation from my God and King:
O Lord, grant me this one last thing!
