With This I Now Draw Near

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 9/29/2015

Dear Lord with this I now draw near;
A burden given me to bear.
For strength I ask with my whole heart
That I might carry all, not part.

I am faulty, willing but weak,
That is why Your strength I seek.
So on Your Almighty name I call
Lest under this heavy weight, alone, I fall.

But not quite alone for in silence I hear
That still small voice sounding in my ear.
Reassuring, powerful, sweet and strong;
In my aching heart You give me a song.

Almighty Comforter, powerful Lord,
Your character I have not fully explored.
Grace immeasurable, mercy unfailing,
Patience given for this sinner, failing.

To You dear Lord, I lift my voice,
In praise for grace and Your ultimate choice.
Your strength You've given in merciful love,
Now peace and rest I have from above.
