I need to play the notes You have written
I need to follow the score, as You planned.
You’re the Composer. You’re the Conductor.
And I - but a player in Your great Band.
Too many times I mess it all up, Lord.
Too often I play wrong notes, or off key!
Another master would have kicked me out,
But You, patiently, keep working on me!
Sometimes I hear wee snatches of music
That sound near perfect - as writ in Your Word.
So I practice more, pay close attention
To know, please, and praise You, my Precious Lord!
