Spare Me This

By Cherry Bieber October 11, 2012


Psalm 78:7 “That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments.”

Should my flesh see many winters

That dim my eyes and ears

Should illness strike its blow

So common with many years

Should my legs refuse to carry me

And my arms I cannot lift

I ask but one thing, Father

A small, yet priceless gift

That my voice will never falter

When singing out Your praise

And my heart will never fail

To Love You all my days

Though my mind forget my loved ones

And strange become their kiss

To forget You, O Dear Father

I plead You spare me this

Let my spirit soar with You, Lord

Where this body cannot go

My life a witness for You

That all who see will know

Your Sovereignty and power

Your Love that sees us through

Let me always have this vision

This sweet, eternal view

Cross of Wood, Tomb of Stone

A cross of wood, a tomb of stone

Could not destroy God’s very own

No hand of darkness can withstand

When “Loose My child!” is God’s command

What life, Love, and beauty casts He

On hearts that call Him brokenly

When final blow has cast its lot

In tangled web one now is caught

But as they grieve for all their wrong

He ushers in His healing song

Reserved for those who will repent

Redemption by His Son He sent

Awaken there, oh foolish man!

Call His Name while yet you can

Tarry not, the hour is late

There is no cause that you should wait

The life and Love and beauty there

A place to cast off all your care

Repentance brings His cleansing flood

Forgiveness through His redeeming blood
