Life’s Desire

1.) I need the promised Holy Ghost;
To stir the gift, O LORD of hosts.
Create in me concrete desire;
To be for Thee a flame of fire.

 

2.) I need the presence of His Son;
From world and sin and self to turn.
To live by faith through God’s great grace;
And walk with Him in grateful praise.

 

3.) I need my Father’s guiding grace;
To spur me on the upward way.
Show me the path to man’s chief end;
Stay by my side, dear Heavenly Friend.

 

4.) Though weak and weary I fight on;
Till some from this wide world I’ve won.
Averting men from God’s great wrath
And turn them to the heavenly path.

 

5.) The promise of an endless life;
God welcomes you to claim the prize.
A thousand million years and more;
With christ forever, forever more

Calvin E.Y. Tan

This poem could be sung to the tune of “O MASTER, LET ME WALK WITH THEE “.
