In The Words I Speak (May I Honour You)

from Ordinary People by Ian Peacock



A simple prayer that I would become more like Jesus, through all the joys and challenges of life.
The verses explore the calling to serve others by walking along side them in their pain.


In the words I speak
In the thoughts I keep
Every choice I make
Every step I take
May I honour you
On the darkest days
In the stress and strains
Through the joys and pains
Make me more like you

Verse 1
Soften my heart and open my eyes
To see how you see, to hear people's cries
Harden my feet to walk where you tread
To pick up my cross for those whom you bled

Pre Chorus
As I walk on the narrowest road
Give me courage and faith as I go

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2
Don't let me pass the man in the road
Whose desperate to share and lighten his load
Washing his feet and cleansing his soul
Lord may I feel the dirt in the bowl
