POETRY: Create In Me by Anna Beth Fore
Reflections on God’s Grace and Faithfulness
From: A Voice for My Soul
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me.
Create in me a pure heart
filled with love, joy, and peace.
Calm these inner struggles
and give my soul release.
Renew my love and passion
for my Savior and my King.
Fill me with psalms and songs,
an offering to you I bring.
Cleanse me every day, Lord,
and make me pure and holy.
Comfort me with your Spirit
as he lives inside of me.
Transform me with your love,
your mercy, and your grace.
Strengthen me when I am weary
so that I can finish the race.
Welcome me with open arms
when my life on Earth is done.
Let the angels sing, “Hallelujah,”
when the battle on Earth is won.
