Not My Will, Oh Lord, But Thine

I want them to know
But how can I tell them?
My heart is full
But my mouth stumbles
I cannot say what is deepest in my heart.
Father, help me!
I am weak,
Unfit to do the work before me.
Fill me, Father,
Show me your words
That what I say
Will not be from
But from
You do not stumble…
Your will is always done.
What else can I say?
You are good,
Let your will be done.
