Lord Make Wheat of Me

July 17, 2011 by stfrancisgirl

Lord, make wheat of me,
For tares are displeasing to Thee.
Let me be a seed with precious intent,
Knowing all things I should repent.

Daily watered by spiritual rain,
Your Word body is food by which I am sustained;

When I first saw the light of Your only Son,
I knew my life had begun.

Swaying to and fro in the wind,
I quiver, twist, and bend.

In faith knowing I’ll never break,
You’ve promised no more than we can take;

While tares will feel the flame and fire,
Your harvest of wheat will be singing in heaven’s choir;

Oh Lord, I pray, make wheat of me,
For tares are condemned to die in fire by Thee!
