Draw me ever closer

 

Lord,
Draw me ever closer 
To your mind, 
So I may share your love 
For humankind.

Lord,
Draw me ever closer
To your heart, 
So you and I may never 
Be apart.

Lord, 
Draw me ever closer
To your soul,
So I may lose my self, 
And reach my goal.

(With many thanks to E.M.)

When I wake up

 

When I wake up
I turn afresh 
To Christ, who dwells
Within my flesh. 

Next, I begin  
To seek and find
The Christ, who dwells 
Within my mind.

Then I get up, 
To play my part
For Christ, who dwells
Within my heart.

And, all day long,
I’ll make my goal
The Christ, who dwells
Within each soul.
