Lord, Teach Me

"Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; 
I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, 
which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.
~Isaiah 48:17 (KJV)

Lord, Teach Me 
(A Prayer Poem~Inspired by Isaiah 48:17-21)

Oh Lord, you are my God
Teach me, Lord, I pray,
Teach me what is best for me,
Lord, teach me every day.

Oh Lord, you are my God,
Please lead me where to go,
Guide me down Thy holy paths,
Thy will I want to know.

Oh Lord you are my God,
Lord, help me to obey,
To hear Thy voice, Lord, in my heart
And do all that You say.

Thy word says if I listen
And walk within Your Light
My peace will be a river
That never will run dry.

My righteousness will be like waves
That role upon the sea,
Ever rolling on and on
If I follow Thee.

My children will be like grains...
Of sand upon the shore
Measureless as the grains of sand
And live forever more
If I will obey Thy voice
And follow Thee, oh Lord.

Oh Lord, You are my God
And to Thy path of faith,
Is where You call my heart to go
And follow You each day.

You call me to the sea,
And there You make a path
Upon the rolling waves You say,
"Trust Me and hold My hand.

You will not let me fall
Beneath the rolling tide
I am always safe with You,
For Lord, You are my Guide.

You carry me to Your shelter,
Despite the wind and waves
We'll walk upon the water
Till on Thy Shores we're safe.

Oh Lord, You are my God,
Please teach me, Lord, I pray,
Please teach me what is best for me
Lord, teach me every day.
~In Jesus' name, Amen.
