My Work

By LinnieJane Burks

Lord, let me not die until I've done for Thee
     My earthly work, whatever it may be--
Call me not hence with mission unfulfilled;
     Let me not leave my space of ground untilled.
Impress that truth upon me that not one
     Can do my portion that I leave undone.

Lord, keep me gentle, keep me still--
     Lord, keep me kind,
Lest I lose all Thy loveliness--
     Lest I be blind!

©Ogbomosho, Jan 1, 1961 Linnie Jane Joslin Burks
