I wonder if You would take my hand
and pull me up so I can stand,
and not let go, but keep Your hold
lest I should crumble down or fold.

While You’re at it, why not take my voice,
fill my mouth with words of Your choice
and take hold of my tempestuous tongue
so I can stop saying the things that are wrong.

Perhaps You’d be kind enough to take my heart
and cleanse it from things with which I can’t part
Would You then mind filling it up again
with the things that You care to maintain?

Perhaps Lord, You should simply take me whole,
to keep my wayward parts under Your control
and renew the thought patterns in my mind
so I will learn to love and to be kind.
