My Lord, My God, My Father
By Daniel W. Shegrud
My Lord, my God, my father, my friend.
Unequaled are you among men.
Immeasurable are you by man.
Infinitely greater than I and yet you see me.
Infinitely wiser than I and yet you love me.
The universe is your play toy, a minor bauble,
an insignificant expanse,
And yet I am counted as your treasure,
Embraced as your lover, adopted as your heir.
I am the least of the least, the lowest of the low,
unworthy of even your smallest notice,
And yet through Christ, My brother, my Redeemer,
I am spotless in your sight
And seated with the highest of the high.
Search me oh Lord.
Tear down the strongholds in my soul
That stand against you.
Make me a useful tool to build your kingdom,
A beautiful instrument for your praise and glory.
