I want to be more like you,
Less like myself
To breathe the scented air of Heaven
My prayer as a constant song of love
Found always disciplined in my heart;
To love first as you do
To hate less and less and less
Peace, as a jasper crystal rainbow that surrounds me
Free from the fear and stress that pulls us all down.
Anxiety, sleepless nights become joyful encounters
When angels minister, sometimes in dreams
And your invisible hand touches my head,
With thoughts of truth and beauty
Good things to be said and done
To care for strangers and friends, those about me
To care for ones far away,
Always content with what I hold in my hand
Happy with the food and drink before me.
Eyes that see this earth
Eyes that look to heaven,
Sweet light from the sun above
Light in my soul from your Heaven high above;
Lord, today on earth in my humble circumstances,
I want to be more like you.
