Lift me up



LIFT ME UP

Lift me up with hands that hold me steady

I am not strong enough to stand alone

Yet one day I will walk the ways you lead me

I am the fruit of seeds that you have sown.

Touch my hand with hands that can be gentle

I am yet weak but strength has weakness too

For I have noticed sometimes when you’re smiling

You hide big tears that choke the way mine do.

Love me much for I am ever growing

My soul can dry up just like flowers that die

Feed me with the love of people and nature

Give me strength, and set my standards high.

Give me justice, freedom and the future

Let my mind and heart stay undefiled

Be my friend and helper while I’m learning

And give me trust, for I am but a child.

(Prayer composed by Rhonda Rice.)
