#throwbackpoem: Keep Me Humble Lord

to GOD be the GLORY

~ Keep Me Humble Lord ~

By Deborah Ann

Humble me Lord,
into submission
prepare my heart
for the transition.

Take away the pride,
still inside of me
so more like You
I can meekly be.

Humble me Lord,
remove my smug ego
so my self-assurance
I can at last forgo.

Teach me to have,
modest obedience
so I can pledge to you
my full allegiance.

Keep me humble Lord,
so I may bring You honor
keep my spirit meek . . .
so my pride I can conquer!

~~~~~~~~~~

Proverbs 29.23

A man’s pride
shall bring him low:
but honour shall uphold
the humble in spirit.
