Guardian of My Soul

My Grandmother used to send me poetry books. I love this poem by Doris A. Orth:
Dearest Jesus, Gentle Lamb,
Guardian of my heart and soul,
Please take me just the way I am,
And make my life complete and whole.

Give me strength enough to face,
The trials of tomorrow,
And faith enough to see me through,
The times of pain and sorrow.

Help me find a way to show,
Friends and loved ones that I care,
And a special part of every day,
For humble, earnest prayer.

And never let me be so blind,
Dear Jesus, that I cannot see,
"The very essence of my being
Is to live my life for Thee!"
You know I love ya - Don
