For Your Grace (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)

"For Your Grace"

I chose not to lead the way
or be the focus of intent
yet here I reside, all on display
for all to see as I repent

I cannot be a perfect spirit
as long as I am bound in sin
I hence feel I’m deemed unfit
for a fight I can’t, alone, win

I pray with passion to see
a promising path of grace
where my people can live free
and our holy father, embrace

Give me strength not to fall
on grievous acts against you
help me hear my lord’s next call
and know your words, alone, are true

I follow where you lead my heart
I give myself to absorb your love
and from evil, set myself apart
I patiently await your guidance from above
