Before You I Kneel (A Worker's Prayer)

Verse 1
Before You I kneel my Master and Maker
To offer the work of my hands
For this is the day You've given Your servant
I will rejoice and be glad
For the strength I have to live and breathe
For each skill Your grace has given me
For the needs and opportunities
That will glorify Your great name

Verse 2
Before You I kneel and ask for Your goodness
To cover the work of my hands
For patience and peace to shape all my labor
Your grace for thorns in my path
Flow within me like a living stream
Wear away the stones of pride and greed
'Til Your ways are dwelling deep in me
And a harvest of life is grown

Verse 3
Before You we kneel our Master and Maker
Establish the work of our hands
And order our steps to seek first Your kingdom
In every small and great task
May we live the gospel of Your grace
Serve Your purpose in our fleeting days
Then our lives will bring eternal praise
And all glory to Your great name
And all glory to Your great name
