Poetry: The Paths You Give Me

Dear Lord, your mercy is wonderful,
So everlasting and true.
You fill me with soaring thankfulness
For all that you for me do.

I never want to desert you,
No matter how hard the way.
Your loving arms do surround me.
I seek you every day.

The paths of others do wander.
The paths of others do stray
Away from your loving kindness,
As they would seek their way.

But never again will I do it,
Consider that you don’t care.
I’ll hold to the paths you give me.
Your love will keep me there.
