Into Your Hands

I place my life into Your Hands, O God,

To do with as You would,

And trust that no matter how it seems,

You seek only my highest good.


I will follow where You may lead,

And, resting in Your Love,

I will yield to Your embrace

And guidance from Above.


Protect my heart and guide my thoughts,

Let not my footsteps stray.

Allow my lips to only speak

In a kind and loving way.


Shield my soul from hardness,

Keep my tender heart intact.

May Your gentle Spirit guide

Forever how I act.


Let me look through loving eyes

To see and ,thus, inspire

Others on this journey, Lord,

To endure yet when they tire.


But most of all, O Loving God,

In whom I place my trust,

Let not my spirit turn away,

As you do the work You must.

A great poem. Just this morning our Pastor's sermon was Hail, Mary and about her willingness to become a handmaid of the Lord. I sense your own surrender to Him in your poem. Thanks for sharing, you are indeed a gifted writer.
