Holy Spirit keep us please
As we are bombarded,
We will see forks that offer
More prominence in the ways & eyes of men.
But the prize will go to the ones who
Hear & heed
God's sovereign lead
To hold to what is theirs indeed
The path ordained for them.
No one can know which road to choose
Our flesh will lead us stray
But yield to the lead found on your knees
And praise in Jesus' name.
There is a Shepherd good & true
To lead us through the fray
And lay down self
To sacrifice for the good & perfect way.
Who knows the souls you will impact,
The Kingdom numbers grown,
When we each yield our very best
To glorify the King of kings,
And carry our set load.
A cross is designated for each one
Who will answer the sweet call
To yield to serve with personal best
The One who gave His all.
How sweet the fellowship for those
Who seek to full obey
To lay down self & trust in God
To walk their narrow way,
Do not fear the cost
Do not despise the day
No matter how rocky - no matter how small –
What looks foolish will bring great reward
For those who truly fear The Lord
And you will find that in the end
From the heart with all praise to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
In Christ Alone
