Take the bowl of my mind and fill it
With Thine understanding.
Take my bottle of emotion and fill it
With Thy mercy.
Take the empty basket of my soul and fill it
With Thy fragrant wisdom.
Use my life’s vessel to dip cupfuls of Thy love
And pour them into the desire-parched
Throats of others.
Break the walls of my love and flood me
With Thine omnipresence.
