I pray for humility
Not often sought
On embarking on a journey
To serve and to be taught
Taught by the Lord
Through relationships formed
Gifts from the Lord
I fear, yet rejoice in

How often have I failed
Relinquished yet retained
A sense of self
Where pride remains
Too often have I gained
No truth at all
When turning from the Lord
To set my own course

But as I’m transformed
While answering His call
I can’t but think
His grace saves all
