a new day and the sun is shining through
As I sit and ponder, Lord
how can I sew for you
Which square of the quilt do I
need to sew today
Guide my heart and lead the way
What color of thread would please
you most today
Could it be that I need to think
And send compassion their way?
Or would you like for me to use
the color of blue
And tell them of a way that is tried and true
Of a Savior that does His work with a beautiful hue
That will fill us with grace, that will carry us through
And bestows joy and love in things that we do.
Lord, would You like me to sew
the color of pink
And on each design, You be the perfect link?
May I sew words of kindness
That may brighten someone's day
And tell them that God can lift, if only they pray.
Jesus, would you like for me to
sew with silver hues
And leave lingering impressions, only those of You
Telling them of Your love and all that You can do
Help me to include the spools most precious to You
And let them unwind to rainbow hues
That my cover may be pleasing to You.
May I finish my quilt with colors
May I handle with care as I grow old
As the squares may lose brilliance and begin to fray
So delicately they need to be placed the right way
May each stitch be firmly bound by angels above
May each imperfection be touched by Jesus' love.
Lord, with each square
Somewhere within, let there be the color of red
That they may know how You died and bled,
For the world of mankind and not for only a few,
In the garden of Gethsemane, Your tears fell
Not for You but Your creation in view.
Let everyday be sewn with the
color of white
The foundation bestowed that sheds precious light
May I always make everyone fill included
And let them fill important and never secluded
For God loves the heart of the low esteemed
In humbleness and kindness were we redeemed.
Lord, when my quilt is all done
And the threads of life have come to an end
May I view the purple lining as my soul ascends
Higher and higher in Your arms I will soar
Then with the angels we will meet on heavens shore
All four corners will be drawn within the veil
My cover will be perfect as it enfolds the blissful gale.
If Jesus Makes The Quilt
The Cover Will Not Be In Vain
