O Most Holy God

How can I honour you

With less than perfect



I wish to be obedient.


Perhaps I have come

A fair way

Since beginning with you

But the million small demands of life

Don’t look sacred.

I tire of little humdrum tasks

You give me.


Obedience eludes me.


This slow work by you

Will re-create.
Give me the grace to live

 Till every heart beat, breath is yours.

Teach me your ways.

You’ve promised me a yoke that

Suits me well.


Obedience will become me.


O Most Holy God

Christ, Teacher, Renovator

Of hearts, perfect mine

For your glory.
