In My Father’s Field

(For a Simply Snickers prompt on “father” and “find,” a Slice of Life prompt on "my father" and a Sunday Scribblings prompt on "guide")

In My Father’s Field

Father, find me in Your field,
Where Your mercies are revealed.
There Your secrets have been sealed
And all hurtings may be healed.

Take my hand and lead me there
In the gently stirring air.
Place Your peace on my despair.
I will follow anywhere.

How I long to do much more,
Any plans You have in store.
Dauntless, driven to the core,
Serving You forevermore.

Touch my eyes and let me see
Visions of Your love for me.
Speak Your truth, and I’ll agree
As You carry me home free.

Plant my feet here on Your sod
In Your presence, duly awed.
Place me in Your promenade,
Glorifying only God.
