Lighter Than a Feather

Another year gone, another year to come;

All I want for my life this year of 2015 is to have a heart

Lighter than a feather.

Only you, Lord Jesus, can empty

The burdens of hate, the spurning desires of greed,

The lustful thirst for wrath…

Oh, I want a heart lighter than a feather,

With no crushing darkness of evil

Pushing on me, trying to make me weak

Putting all my strength in to hatefulness.

That’s not what I want, my Lord,

Please make me free

From the heaviness of sin

And lighten my soul by filling it with

The love of life

That makes my heart

Lighter than a feather.

Amen!

KAB
