For His Name's Sake

by jeffry baggett

I was a spoilt child who had faith in my own might
But with mercy He call'd me forth from that dark world
And wash'd my spirit clean in His glorious light
My bare soul lays at His feet completely unfurled

My heart hangs on ev'ry word Jesus has spoken
Looking past circumstances for surely I know
I must fight on 'til all worldly bonds are broken
The less greedy I am, the more His blessings flow

Avoiding those who love to feast on destruction
I keep mine eyes fix'd upon the 'Ancient of Days'
Wait in silent patience to hear His instruction
For truly, the Lord works in mysterious ways
