“I do not ask Thee to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one.” ~John 17:15
Empty words I’ve heard are only the reflection of myself.
But when Christ, my Life, knelt lonely in the Garden, pleading pardon
For my soul, that I’d be whole, and wholly yielded to the King,
He was heard, His words were spoken from a broken man, yet God
Found them pleasing, for this reason He was heard, His every word.
And I’m trusting that His pleading for the life that I am leading
Will be proven as I’m kept from death, His breath my daily bread.
