I am Yours, O Lord –

My dreams, my desires, the yearnings of my heart –
I place in Thy Hands, O Lord.
Do with me as Thou wilt –
with my life, my abilities, my ambitions –
(not that I have many ambitions, but what I have are Yours)-
My affections, my hopes,
All things belong to Thee.
I will follow You where You call me –
only let Your voice come clearly to my inner ear
so that I might not confuse it with other noise of my ego’s wants.

Be glorifed, dear Lord – in and through and even,
when we must be blunt about it –
In spite of me.
amen.
