Lord of Creation

Lord of Creation, to you be all praise,
Most mighty your working, most wondrous your ways,
Your glory and might are beyond us to tell,
And yet in the heart of the humble you dwell.

Lord of all power, I give you my will,
In joyful obedience, your tasks to fulfill,
Your bondage is freedom, your service is song,
And held in your keeping my weakness is strong.

Lord of all wisdom, I give you my mind,
Rich truth that surpasses my knowledge to find,'
What eye has not seen and what ear has not heard,
Is taught by your spirit and shines from your word.

Lord of all bounty, I give you my heart,
I praise and adore you for all you impart,
Your love to inspire me your counsel to guide,
Your presence to shield me whatever betide.

Lord of all being I give you my all,
If e're I disown you I stumble and fall,
But led in your service your word to obey,
I'll walk in your freedom to the end of the way.

Maisie I knew you in 1993
You were all wet then and still I forgave you,
When are you getting out of the tub, I'd like to know,
Some time I could use a bath, if you ever think so . . .
