Holding On To Humility
"He has showed you, O man, what is good;
and what does the LORD require of you but
to do justice, and to love kindness, and
to walk humbly with your God?" (1)
The Mission of Submission
Submit to Him; accept your place --
A handmaid at His beck and call:
Your weakness is replete with grace;
He provides for your needs in all.
Seek to please Him in all you do:
His will be done before your own.
Your good intent comes shining through
A faithful son before His throne.
Seek out the Truth; let His light shine,
In the dark reaches of your heart.
Your eyes will see the ways Divine,
In which your cross plays a key part.
We find the way, the truth, and light,
When we walk with Humility:
Our hearts are pure; clear is our sight.
When we submit, we are set free!
