Poem

Empty

Michael Beck Michael Beck

Give me love when love has left
When of all feeling I’m bereft

Give me joy when night is long
When trials would silence every song

Give me peace when chaos reigns
When storms increase and quiet wanes

Give me hope when hope is lost
When fears abound and thoughts are tossed

Give me faith when I can’t see
When mountains loom in front of me

Give me goodness when I’m spent
When I can’t give for all is lent

Give me patience when I’m through
When I would turn from trusting You

Give me Jesus when I’m done
For when I’m empty, You will come.
