Rescue Me — A Poem

Lord, I know of your goodness.

It is true, you alone are good.

Where would I be without you?

I would be lost, forever.

I would be forgotten, at the bottom of the ocean floor.

You rescued me one thousand times.

And now Lord, rescue me

once more.

I stand in the mire of my self-defeat.

I long for better days.

I seek your joy and your mighty spirit.

Strengthen me Lord, teach me your ways.

Teach me to rejoice in the triumphs of others.

Help me to shift my focus from myself.

Lord, have your way in me.

May I trust in you all my days.

You Lord are trustworthy and you have never once let me down.

Praise be to God forever and ever.
