by Paul Mayes Jamar
Thank you, Lord for what I receive. Even if it is nothing, You love me, I believe. Lead me to patiently wait for your provision And not in my own strength make a decision. I want your best for me every day, And if I am a pauper, I will enjoy that way. For great will be my stature in Heaven hereafter. Even in a lowly, humble state I have laughter. For the Victor of this world is Lord Jesus, Conquering from a cross the sins of all of us. As He lives in me to make me quite complete, For on my own I am a liar, thief, and cheat. Teach me to have patience until the time You will come to rain down a blessing to my kind.
