Help me to walk so close to Thee,
That those who know me best can see,
I live as godly as I pray,
And Christ is real from day to day.
I see some once a day or year,
To them I blameless might appear,
‘Tis easy to be kind and sweet,
To people who we seldom meet.
But in my home are those who see,
Too many times the worst of me.
My hymns of praise were best unsung,
If I could not control my tongue.
When I am vexed and sorely tried,
And my impatience cannot hide.
May no one stumble over me,
Because Thy love they failed to see.
But give me LORD, a life that sings,
And victory over little things.
Give me Thy calm for every fear,
Thy peace for every fallen tear.
Make mine, O LORD, through calm & strife,
A gracious and unselfish life.
Help me with those who know me best,
For Jesus’ sake to stand the test.
This is my prayer~ Could not be better said.
