Humble Lesson

I confess and have contrition,
I’ve not been in submission.
I’ve tried to do things with my hands.
By my strength I’ve worked to stand.
Thus what I earned I could not afford.
Better to wait upon the Lord.
Who planned success before I began.
Who sought to raise a humble man.

God Hears You

God hears you when you speak,
whether strong or if you’re weak.
You may be a pauper or a king,
rank and possessions mean not a thing.
You have equal access,
much as monk or a priest.
Preacher or a sinner,
all are invited to God’s feast.
He listens to prayers of all sincere.
His endless love desires you near.
