A Lofty Goal

I Love you Lord; I surely do,
And I know you love me too.
When I reach out to touch your robe,
Your hand comes down to take my load.

I’ll follow you down life’s long path,
Until I’ve reached my goal at last.
The Bible says I’ll be like you;
I’ve tried the Word and know it’s true.

I thank you that this truth is mine;
I’ll toe each precept to the line.
I’ll walk with you my journey through,
And abide until I’m just like you.

This truth, My Lord, I would not miss,
It turned my sadness into bliss.
A brilliant star shines in my night,
To make each day a sheer delight.
