Lord Make Me A Blessing

 

Lord make me a blessing in all I do and say,
I want to be what You were as You walked the narrow way.
For everywhere You went in every love filled day
You touched and healed, and helped each one
That in Your presence stayed
Lord You were a blessing to the woman at the well,
To Your disciple Peter who before Your trial fell.
To the lepers who were outcasts, to the beggars and the lame,
Lord You were a blessing, please make me the same.

Lord make me a blessing especially in my home,
But send me only nice folk to share my jam and scone.
For Lord I’d really be put out if at my door there came
A dirty, smelly, longhaired lout who stood there in his shame.
Lord make me a blessing to everyone I meet,
While I do my shopping and I’m walking in the street,
But Lord You really can’t expect for me to help that drunk
Who’s fallen off his seat and in the gutter sunk.
He’s there a victim of himself, there’s no one else to blame,
But Lord make me a blessing as I go out in Your Name.

Lord make me a blessing as I go up to my school,
I would be a light for You, and there I’d be a fool.
But Lord don’t ask that I should speak about my life in You.
Nor ask me turn the other cheek, or leave revenge to You.
To do that is too hard Lord, that’s just not playing the game,
But Lord make me a blessing at school just the same.
Lord make me a blessing as I go about my work,
To those You put into my path may Lord I never shirk,
Just let me work with Christians where we all believe the same,
Lord make me a blessing, as I speak out in your name.

Lord make me a blessing in all I do and say.
I want to be what You were as You walked the narrow way.
I want to be a blessing in my work, home, and school and walk,
But Lord my prayer so often is a lot of empty talk.
“My children if a blessing to me you want to be,
Count not the cost of loss of face if Christ your friends would see.
Because My walk is lonely, My cross so hard to bear,
And few there are who wish to be a blessing where
I would lead, and say just when and what to say,
Or who to see, and help, and share the burdens of their day.
I ask of you just one thing, and that is when you pray
Lord make me a blessing, say, I obey”.
