And One More Thing…

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Lord, what have I to give Thee,
That Thou art waiting, still?
 
You have one thing to offer,
My child, it’s your will.
 
But Lord, I thought I’d given
My strength, my soul, my love…
 
But will you follow Me, my child,
When those are not enough?
 
Yes, Lord…I find I’m clinging to
That final part of me.
 
Then let it go, My child;
And you’ll find you are free…
 
To serve Thee better, Father?
Then take all that is mine;
My heart, my soul, my strength – my all;
For now, my will is Thine.
 
 
"He answered: 'Love the Lord your God
with all your heart and with all your soul'
and with all your strength
and with all your mind…'"
Luke 10:27
