"Make Me Lord"
Send me Lord , ere I go,
Let me walk, in you so;
All my life I’ll Abide,
With you Lord By My Side.
Call me Lord, Where I go,
That where I am, you will know;
All my soul to you I give,
Only for you Lord, do I live.
Love me Lord with Love Divine,
Help me live on precepts thine;
All thy promises I know are mine,
Let me fall Lord, on mercies thine.

So, to truly capture inspiration you have to stop wen it happens and write it down! MOJ
