Make Me Beautiful

Make something beautiful of me Lord
Use a little of the sun
Because the sun is bright and warm
And it’s where folk like to come.

Then perhaps a little sky
Transparent, clear and true
So when others turn to look at me
They see right through to You.

The glow of the moon to shine through the gloom
Dispelling darkness for those burdened too
Please attach a few stars to show where You are
So my journey will lead Me to You

Make my mind just like Yours Holy and pure
Purposed to do Your will
I’d like rock in my feet so I don’t slip as I seek
The next step on this journey uphill.

Then colour me faithful, loving and true
A child of my Father above
Who will faithfully tell, ‘live for God, do His will
And He’ll colour you, too, with His love.’

Wyn, I really love this one, although the verses are different in length, I think they are all very beautiful and creative, I especially love verse 1 and 2 and the last one

Yes I realised that those verses were a different length and I tried to rewrite them several times. It was as if I had changed gear but couldn't change back !
I should have chopped them out I think and left it as a very short poem.
Glad you liked it though and thank you for your kind words.

Well, keep it as it is! What is written, stays written :)
