A Mary’s Prayer

Wash my eyes, Master, unstop my ears, remove the veil from thy word;
Save this soul from these drowning tears, and gird this mind 'gainst self's dread cord! 

Let these eyes with brightness shine, denoting peace and hope within
That comes from thy strength so divine and slays the lying tongue of sin.

Be thy promise all my heart requires to wait on thee and watch with perfect calm;
Be thy presence all my soul desires when tender waiting seems to last too long.

Let me hear Rabboni call my name; teach this heart to walk the kingdom's way; 
Let thy living law in me proclaim the faith that rests and hears thy voice today.

Show me I am nothing on my own - and help me see that I'm your child!
Judge me at thy judgment throne - still draw me though the storms blow wild!

Jesus, friend and Saviour, here I bow,
Willing that thy voice in trial will increase…

“Thy faith hath made thee whole now,
My child, I am with thee; go in peace.”

  1. The poem has the feeling of untying a difficult knot, going from a short bursts of phrases in the first stanza to longer, peaceful, simpler phrases of release. We can trust Him!

  3. It is very interesting that you included the Bible verses behind your poem. Reading them as well lends such perspective to the verse. This reminds me of the songs of James Block based on Scripture.
    I especially like the line, “Willing that thy voice in trial will increase…” During these crazy times, ‘Amen’ to that!

  4. Thank you Brook so much. You have a very beautiful and touching way of writing. This poem blessed me. I really enjoyed how you based this poem on scripture. I especially liked the lines, “Wash my eyes, Master, unstop my ears, remove the veil from thy word;” and “Let me hear Rabboni call my name; teach this heart to walk the kingdom’s way;” Yeshua has given you much talent.

    P.S. Please tell Amberlin, “Shiloh says hi.” She will know who I am. 🙂
