Lord, Teach Me...

Lord, I really need to talk to you.
I'm sure you already knew.
I've put this off long enough,
this is really going to be tough.

I don't know where to start,
I feel such shame in my heart.
I unkindly judged someone today,
this I do often, I must say.

It tears at my heart what I did,
this guilt I'm feeling, I want to rid.
Lord, I do truly ask forgiveness,
send it to the sea of forgetfulness.

I want to be so much like you,
good is what I want to do.
Teach me to love "ALL,"
and in the process, not fall.

Help me not to be cruel,
I don't want to add to satan's fuel.
Please fill me with compassion,
I want this with such passion.

When I see someone in need,
help me to plant a seed.
Even if this person is unkind,
fill me with love... your kind.

If I know of someones dark past,
my past sins, on my heart cast.
Remind me of my living for satan,
show me my sins you had taken.

If I see an unsaved soul out there,
fill my heart to want to share.
Don't let me just pass them by,
'coz in hell, I don't want them to fry.
