Let love take over when hate surrounds;
Let my heart be filled with love that abounds.
Let joy bring strength when I feel weak.
You’re all I need; Your face I seek.
Let peace take over that calms all strife;
Your peace from above, for You are my life.
O give me a heart, Lord, of longsuffering,
At times when I’m tested and tried to the brim.
Let gentleness, Lord, be a part of me.
Please mould me, as clay, to be all I should be.
Let goodness shine as the bright morning sun,
So darkness, by light, may be overcome.
Let faith come forth that will banish all fear.
Dispel all the doubts; let Your presence be near.
Let meekness, Lord, be what You will see.
Remove all earthly pride in me
Let temperance show ~ in all that I do.
Please help me to be a reflection of You
Each step of the way, in the journey I take,
Be exalted, dear Lord, for Your Name’s sake.
