Suffused with prayer

💛

1. Suffused with prayer,
My little cross –
I hold it tight
In joy, and loss.

2. Lord, may I
Be just the same –
Safe in your hands,
Breathing your name.

3. No matter what you send,
I’ll praise
And thank you, Father,
All my days.

4. So, I worship,
And adore –
One with you,
For evermore.

💛
