Open Heart
(A Personal Embrace of the 24th Psalm)
By Cathy Powell

Gates of my heart be opened now
Be evermore thrown wide;
Let enter in the Lord of Hosts
Invite Him to reside.

A mighty Warrior is this
Who wages war for me
Defeating all the evil foes
My soulís dark enemies.

My head is lifted up to Him
To seek His lovely face;
And receive righteousness anew
The blessings of His grace.

Oh, cleanse the deeds I do, dear God
And make my motives pure;
Please guide my journey to the heights
Where holiness is sure.

Creator of the universe
This world belongs to Thee;
The land, the sea, the trees, the sky
Reveal your majesty.

So, let my heart be poised
To ever worship You in awe;
Considering the wonders
Of Your power and Your law.

May generations yet to come
Unite their voice with mine;
May hearts forever open to
The glory that is Thine.
