Give My Heart a Mission, Lord

I wrote this poem during one of my devotions several years ago. It is a simple poem, but its simple request demands deeper sacrifice.

Give my heart a mission, Lord,
A vision for the lost;
Help me stand against all strife
And pay whate’er the cost.

Give my heart a mission, Lord,
To reach the ones You love;
Use my life to testify
The Way to heav’n above.

Give my heart a mission, Lord,
To share Your Word each day;
Put Your imprint in my life
In all I do and say.

wow =P. I was struck by conciseness of the phrases, the elegance of the line of thought, but most of all the clarity of meaning and the simple sincerity...
Your poem blessed me today. thanks =)
