God’s Empty Page

O Lord, my life’s an open page
On which you write to fill
Using your omniscient mind
You neatly write your will

You started when I first was born
And wrote on through the years
Copied every part of me
My joy and pain and fears

Sometimes I tried to take the pen
Out from your mighty hand
To write the things I wanted when
I did not understand

But you knew what was best for me
And wrote the trials right in
Making sure you stood quite close
To keep me from the sin

So far the page is neatly done
But I must keep in mind
That one small blot will wreck my life
Then peace I’ll never find

So Lord, upon my open page
I’ll let you write and fill
Whatever joys or trials I need
To keep me in your will
