The Winding Road
O Lord, help me to be not like an idol made of human hands
Let me be as You are, one who truly cares and understands,
O Lord, help my mouth to speak words that bring new life
Let me be silent when my speech would cause others strife.
O Lord, help my hands to be about the business of gathering
Let me keep away from the gossips and those busy bodying,
O Lord, help my ears to hear a praise of joy from the creation
Let me imagine songbirds singing Your laws as a proclamation.
O Lord, let me not worship anything made here by a machine
Help the fabric of my spirit to be so strong, mature and clean,
O Lord, help me remember that the time is a valuable resource
Help my life to be navigated in a way so I am staying on course.
O Lord, now let my imagination not be fixed upon anything vain
Help me to be a healer and an example of overcoming the pain,
O Lord, help my tongue to only speak with joy from Your word
Help me to fly away from the face of idolatry, as a hummingbird.
O Lord, let me continue to understand that the sunrise is a gift
Help me to give to it my best and brightest, not utilizing thrift,
O Lord, let me at night find the rest of the blessed, in Your will
Help me to stay upon the narrow path to return to You, until…
