gimme, gimme, GIVE ME


gimme, gimme, GIVE ME

I used to go around
Thinking all I needed was
More of Jesus,
More of Jesus;
Jesus, give me more power
Lord, give me more faith
Help me go forward
Fill me with Your love
Jesus, give me encouragement

There was nothing wrong 
With these prayers
Except when gimme, gimme
Became so loud
It all but drown out
Your sweet patient voice
Whispering
Marijo, give ME
All of you...
"My strength is made perfect
In your weakness..."
Marijo, yield your SELF to Me,
Marijo, GIVE ME Marijo.
