MY PRECIOUS ONES
Sit with me a while, my Lord
Today was very hard:
Faith woke up too late again,
Hope forgot her lunch.
Help this child calm down, O Lord
And give my Love a patient heart.
Keep these precious ones from harm
And fill their thoughts to brim with Yours.
So Faith can have more faith each day;
So Hope would not be lost.
Please don’t forget my third, my dove
And give my Love a humble heart.
You graced me with each one, my
You entrusted me Your gems.
You weaved them in my body once—
Please have Your way with them.
When Faith and Hope and Love are grown,
They are Your glory and Your crowned reward.
