Deliver Me, Teach Me, Quicken Me (based on Ps. 143)

by Lemon Squeezy   Aug 18, 2017


Deliver Me, O Lord, from the enemies at bay,
Teach Me to walk in the everlasting way,
Quicken My Spirit in this most evil day,
Deliver Me, Teach Me, Quicken Me, I pray.

Deliver My soul from eternal damnation,
Teach Me the way of Thy glorious Salvation,
Quicken Me, Father, to do Thy wondrous Vocation,
Deliver Me, Teach Me, Quicken Me is my Proclamation

Deliver Me from the storms that I Face,
Teach Me to live and grow in Thy Grace,
Quicken and cleanse my heart, dwell in it's space,
Deliver Me, Teach Me, Quicken Me what're the case

Deliver Me, O God, Whatever the Cost,
Teach Me to forsake the way of the Lost,
Quicken My strength while in tempests I'm tossed,
Deliver Me, Teach Me, Quicken Me, Magnify Thy Cross!

Deliver my soul, my body, and mind,
Teach Me the truth in scripture to find,
Quicken my spirit tho oft it seem blind,
Deliver Me, Teach Me, Quicken Me, Thou Most Holy Divine!

Deliver my thoughts, to think always of Thee,
Teach me to walk In the light that I might see,
Quicken my soul and from sin set it free,
Deliver Me, Teach Me, Quicken Me, may my prayer ever Be.

    I find such poetic beauty in a God Hymn...as I have in this prayer.
