A Temple Prayer (from Birdhouses of the Heart)

Lord, I offer thee my dedication
Please walk with me in robes of white on white
Showing me Thy paths of preparation,
Protecting me in shelters of Thy sight.

As curtains of Eternity unfold
Please life the veil until the pathway's clear
So answers given me in words of gold
Can touch my heart in ways that I will hear.

Thus bound in understanding what will be
In partnership with Thee, I cannot fail
Through times of wealth as well as poverty
I know Thy righteous wishes will prevail.

With tears of thankfulness I do implore
To grow in grace by grace forevermore.
