Oh Lord, Wean Me Now   Leave a comment

O Lord, wean me!

O Lord, wean me now,
From the spirit of pride.
Why must I be proud?

Wean me Lord,
Before it becomes
   too late
From the spirit of pride,

Do I have Power?
Is it absolute?
Lord, wean me now!

It is on record
   in your Word,
that All authority
   has been given
You in heaven
and on earth. (Matthew 28:18)
You are not proud.

Lord, wean me now!
Do I occupy a position?
Can I receive it, if it
  had not come from heaven?

Lord, wean mw now!
Do I have wealth or
   riches?
Is it by my might or
   power?

Wean me, o Lord,
You possess the earth
   and all its fullness,
The world and those who
   dwell therein.

Wean me, o Lord!
The Proud rich man
   ended in hell
Lazarus, the poor but
humble in paradise,
Help me Lord.

Am I too old to serve the
    young ones in my generation?
Am I too Big to do
“Little and filthy jobs” for You?”
Wean  me Lord!

Does a veil cover my pride,
To accuse others of arrogance
When a cankerworm of pride
   had eaten deep into my bones
   and marrow?

Wean me o, Lord
Help me to turn a search light into
   my heart,
To know and uproot that hidden
   root of pride.

Wean me, o Lord!
Before it’s too late
Because it may soon be late
   In that you will come soon,
Do not meet me  in such a state!

Lord, wean me now!

Help me Lord, 
Let me not replace 
   You with myself in
   The lives of people
Let me not replace You
   with people in my life.
