I Heard Your Voice A Askin' revised

I heard Your voice a askin'
For a commitment today
You asked a willing soul
To walk out Your path a way
I nervously peered around me
Whoever were You talking to?
"My child, I'm calling on you,
I have a task for you to do."
I couldn't quite see behind that rock
Maybe Your chosen one was there...
"My daughter, it's you I call"
You made me sorely aware
I stammered "I'm not qualified"
But in persistence You helped me see
My own efforts counted for naught
My strength was Your Spirit in me
"Daughter, yield your will to me
Let Me course through you
Put your feet in My footsteps
My aim is always true.
It's supposed to be very easy,
When I ask someone to go-
Only say YES when I ask
It releases my Spirit, you know,
All I need is a volunteer
Someone who's on My side
One who's given Me control
And in My love abides."
Lord Jesus, here am I
Use me as You will
Teach me as I walk with You
It's not me, but Your Spirit that fills!!!
