Lord, grant me wisdom and understanding,
For I feel like a pathetic fool.
But if that’s what I am,
Let me be a fool
Tucked away in your arms.
Lord, grant me sight and enlightenment,
For I feel blind as a bat.
But if a bat I be,
Let me be a bat
That follows the echo of your voice into the darkness.
Lord, grant me protection and strength,
For I feel like a weak and armorless soldier.
But if I am indeed,
Let me be like David
And teach me how to shoot a slingshot.
