Beautiful poem entitled "Dear God"

This is a beautiful poem that my dear friend from church, Hannah Morse (www.psalm127sisters.blogspot.com), wrote not long ago. She is very talented!! I hope you enjoy it:

Dear God, I'm blind and I can't see,
Please change my heart and work in me.
Dear God, I'm deaf and I can't hear,
Please take this silence out of my ear.
Dear God, I'm weak, please make me strong,
Allow me to worship You all day long.
Dear God, thank You for your love and help,
And now in you I find my wealth!!!!

  5. Hannah and Rebekah,
    I don't know if you will notice this when the post is so old, but you just reminded me of two poems that I love. The first is out of the Trinity hymnal(this is only some of it) -

    "Lord, I was blind: I could not see
    In thy marred visage any grace;
    But now the beauty of thy face
    In radiant vision dawns on me.

    Lord, I was deaf: I could not hear
    The thrilling music of thy voice
    But now I hear thee and rejoice,
    And all thine uttered words are dear.

    Lord, I was dead: I could not stir
    My lifeless soul to come to thee;
    But now, since thou hast quickened me,
    I rise from sin's dark sepulcher."

    -William T. Mason

    The second is from one of my favorite poems ever -

    "Thou are my life, if thou but turn away,
    My life's a thousand deaths, thou are my way,
    Without thee, Lord, I travel not but stray.

    My light thou art, without thy glorious sight,
    My eyes are darkened with perpetual night,
    My God, thou art my way, my life, my light.

    Thou are my way, I wander if thou fly,
    Thou art my light, if hid, how blind am I!
    Thou art my life, if thou withdraw I die.

    Disclose thy sunbeams, close thy wings and stay,
    See, see how I am blind and dead and stray,
    Oh, thou that art my life, my light, my way! "

    -Franis Quarles

    We are so helpless without Him, aren't we?
