D E V O T I O
By Rev. Dean
Devotion is a
solemn word. “To love without degree.”
For it is the
very way that Christ showed love to me.
but gave His all to save my soul from sin.
Should I not give
Him everything and where do I begin?
Should I devote
my heart to Him and give it full and free?
If I’m to love my
Savior so, the way that He loved me.
No other thing,
no other one must come before my King.
But I must give
myself complete in every earthly thing,
Yet even as I say
those words, my mind is filled with thought.
There is so much
on earth I crave. It’s hard to withhold naught.
My heart is weak
and yet I will to have it in control.
The Lord knows all and sees my plight, in making this my goal.
stumble on my way of giving God my all.
But thank you
Lord, you do not fail to hear me when I call.
So I confess my
love anew. “I give my heart, oh Lord.
strengthen me in giving all my love to you outpoured.”
