63. God, Bless the Poet's Heart and Hand

God, bless the poet’s heart and hand, creating songs of faith and praise;
Yet may each writer understand our words cannot contain your ways.

God, bless the ones who boldly dare to let the scriptures be their guide;
Yet may no one of us declare that you are always on our side.

God, bless the ones who teach and learn, who seek the truth by which to live;
Yet show us: Knowledge cannot earn the love that only you can give.

God, bless the ones who daily lead your churches, cities, nations, too;
Yet may these leaders humbly see their need to serve and follow you.

In Christ we daily live and grow; your Spirit guides us by your grace.
A mirrored image now we know; yet one day we’ll see face to face.
