Learning to Lean

If I were asked-“Oh, yes of course,” I said.
I am a Christian. See? The Book I’ve read.
At church I listen and I pray and try
To live by all the rules.” It was a lie.

I knew it, and inside it made me sad.
There was no joy in anything I had.
But every now and then there’d be a sign
That Someone cared about this life of mine.

It’s true that I’d never in my soul,
Been willing to give Jesus full control.
Perhaps I was afraid that He might ask
Something of me and I would fail the task.

Forgive me, Lord for wasted years I pray.
Stretch out your hand again to me today.
I cannot cope; I do not want control
I thank you for the peace within my soul.
