Another poem from “Songs in the Night” by Michael R Abbott; used with permission.
Revive my soul, O Lord I pray;
Give me the strength and health this day
To serve Thee as my soul desires;
To Thee alone my heart aspires.
Incline my heart to do Thy will;
Thy purpose Lord in me fulfil.
Help me to see Thy way is best
And find in this a perfect rest.
For me to live is Christ indeed;
To know this truth, O Lord I plead.
To die is gain, death has no sting;
In paradise His praise I’ll sing.
Lord may Thy Word come sweet and clear,
To take away all earthly fear.
May Christ be all in all to me,
Both now and for eternity.
Philippians 1 v 21: “For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain”.
