As You Are, Let Me Be

The LORD gave me this poem, that can also be sung. Praise Him!

As You are Light, LORD, let me be
A light to others so they’ll see
Your holiness and purity,
Your faithfulness and love.

A You are Love, LORD, let me give
My love to those with whom I live;
Help me to sow peace and forgive
AS You’ve forgiven me.

As You’ve forgiven me, my LORD,
Teach me to wield Your two-edged Sword,
To seek Your heavenly reward,
As You are, let me be.
