Lord Make me A Garment of Praise

Lord, make me a garment of praise
even though my flesh is wearing thin
and the days behind
are more than the days ahead
To sing of your Shikeneh Glory
with my brothers and sisters in this
wilderness called earth
Let me moisten my thirsty soul
on justice for the poor,
Let my tears find solace with
The Martyrs who cry under the alter
“How Long Lord?”
Let me sing praises with Paul and Silas
in that jail cell
Lord make me a garment of praise
give me beauty for ashes
and child-like fear
Give me the wisdom of
Your Holy Word
A sharpened sword
to fight the ever vigilant demons
O’ Rock of Ages
Secure me, and gird me,
Hide me in the cleft of the rock

Artist's Description

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me.
Because the Lord has anointed Me.
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who
are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance, of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of
righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be
glorified.”
(Isaiah 61:1-3)

My faith in the Lord Jesus is everything to me.
