Draught

Father,

A draught of Your grace, I thirst --
Love's life-brew,
Boundless and overflowing.

Mix with my will and
Steep in Your Son's Saving Courage,
I will freshen with freedom's flow. Now,

Refreshed and full-measured,
Gone the wild maze of the world,
The claws of the flesh, I will psalm
The God-Song, Your Song,
The melody of joy.

Then,
Filled with Jesus,
Sated with Jesus,
I will, Father, eye upwards
To Your Home -- my mission.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
