Dear Lord,                

When You spoke to me,

My heart felt strangely moved.

Those fears and stresses greatly eased,

As I responded to Your call.

There was no sound—-

But still my soul was drawn

As if by one magnetic pulse,

I felt Your touch upon my heart!

For years I have struggled long with doubt.

“O who can free me

From the cords which bind my heart

And mind in shackles fast?”

And now again Your call—-                     

How warm and meaningful it is.

It calms my fears, and solves

The guilt and pain within.

Thank You Lord for calling then,

I’m glad You came right now

Please guide me with Your sacred Word.

I’m glad to sense again that saving touch!      

Amen.
