The Prayer of Zeal

If I am to live Oh LORD,
Let it be with great zeal.
Not with pompous words,
Or even in how I feel!

Oh LORD, may just a part of Your passion,
 Live in one as simple as me.
And may my steps honor You,
For all to see!

For to live without Your passion,
Is to die slowly each day.
Like a ship with no compass,
Sailing away!

No port ahead,
No mission to complete.
Just another day on board,
Lost to the fleet!

Sailing the globe,
But never seeing the sites.
Passing great cities,
Only at distance, seeing their lights.

May The LORD call me home,
Should I grow this cold.
For should my passion die,
May I never grow old!
