You’re my Maker

1. Father,
You’re my Maker,
My Lord, my fire, my light;
I worship you with all my strength,
And glory in your might.

2. Mary,
You’re my Mother,
My peace in heaven above;
I honour you with all my mind,
And revel in your love.

3. Jesus,
You’re my Saviour,
My life, my truth, my way;
I sing your praise with all my heart,
And thank you every day.

4. Spirit,
You’re my Teacher,
My Comforter and Friend;
I welcome you with all my soul,
And trust you to the end.

I love you

Hello, everyone. I’ve just discovered that yesterday’s post again only reached those who follow me by email. I don’t know why this happened, but will try to guard against it in future. Meanwhile, I’m re-posting that day’s prayer, so no one will miss out. I’m really sorry this happened.

How powerful you are, Lord God,
I love you.
My rock and refuge every day,
I love you.

May I walk in your narrow way,
I love you,
And always praise your name, and pray,
I love you.

How wonderful you are, Lord God,
I love you.
My teacher and my steadfast guide,
I love you.

May I give up all hate and pride,
I love you,
And always journey at your side,
I love you.

How glorious you are, Lord God,
I love you.
My advocate and comfort still,
I love you.

May I thank you for good and ill,
I love you,
And always try to do your will,
I love you.
