A Poem by Leroy Ralph Abrahams: "Lord, only You can..."

September 29, 2018








Lord, only You can...

Turn my pain
Into power
Makes things in my life sweet
That's gone sour

Who can provide for me
Like You did for Elijah
Because You are my
Jehovah Jirah

Turn my sadness
Into laughter
And are able to keep it that way
Ever after

Be with me like You've been with
Daniel and the three Hebrew friends
And bless the works
Of my hands

Fill me with the patience
That Job had
And even reconcile
Me with my dad

Protect me like You
Protected David from Saul
And use me like You
Used Paul

To do or achieve anything
I don't need an army or clan
Because, Daddy God,
I believe with You, I can
