My Symphony of Praise
Lord, make my life a symphony
Of praise -- an offering.
Remove each strident, squeaky chord,
And sweeten every string.
Please keep the instruments I play
Attuned in harmony,
So no discordant notes can spoil
The finished melody.
And keep me centered on The One
Who leads with matchless grace;
And after life's crescendos fade,
Provides a resting place.
