In my prayers to my King I will not plead for ease.
Instead I will plead to stay in the Lord’s shadow,
Under His grace is my one request to Him.
Worldly desires I will not request from the Almighty,
In my petitions I won’t beg for treasure on earth.
But I will ask of God if I could stay in presence,
To be allowed to remain in His way I will pray.
I will not ask for fleeting fame in my requests to Him,
Fickle popularity I won’t ask for in my prayers.
My only desire is to find favor with my Savior,
To receive the Love of my Christ is what I long for.
With gladness I will endure great toil for my God,
I am willing to suffer greatly to persevere for the Lord.
Just so that I may be allowed to remain in the Lord’s will,
To walk with the Almighty, I am willing to endure much.
For He is more valuable than anything on this earth,
