Of A Gentle Nature
By Frederick Blanchard
May my voice always be soft and serene;
And search the depth of my heart Lord
Making its every chamber pure and clean.
Let the words I use be solid and true
In order to build up with wisdom,
Keeping things of eternity in view.
Making any aggression fade quickly away
And fill the void with understanding,
Giving me a gentle nature each and every day.
May I live life with a prophet’s insight
And be a gentle guide of righteousness,
With endurance supplied by Your might.
I find trusting in You, I have total replete;
And its sweet nectar nourishes my soul
And strengthens and shelters me from defeat.
