Ujamaa Christian Poetry

Lord, I Try

O Lord, I try to do everything
that You want me to.
But, I fall way short when
it comes to following You.

I try to help others and
keep a smile on my face.
But the world sometimes closes
in on me and tries to steal Your Grace.

I know I can't be perfect
though I strive to never tell a lie.
When it comes to serving You and keeping
Your commandments all I can do is try.

Come Lord and give me all that I need to
be more of a Christian than I am.
Some choices that I make get me into trouble
so I call on God to rescue this man.
