MY NEW YEAR PLEA

Give Me Children Lest I die!

1. I am barren and alone

So discouraged and depressed;

For not one day have I brought to Him a soul,

I can’t stay where others stay,

But above this Lord I pray;

Give me children, Lord Jesus, lest I die!

2. Time is winding to a close,

Soon the saints will be raptured home,

Must I go an empty-handed,

While other go with the fruit of the womb?

Hear my cry, hear my call,

Hear my cry, Lord I pray;

Give me children, Lord Jesus, lest I die!

3. Many years in vain I’ve spent,

Nothing Lord to You I’ve sent,

Burdened souls are daily crushed beneath the load,

Lord myself to You I give,

Take me to the ripened field,

Give me children, Lord Jesus, lest I die!

4. Lord still years are rolling by,

Satan sends more souls to hell,

But I me I find no power to win the souls,

Lord I ask thee for thy strength,

To obey thy blest command,

Give me children, Lord Jesus, lest I die!

Dear Lord, others may be asking for money, position, recognition, houses, cars, foreign trips, influence and affluence this year. But my cry is for You and souls! My contemporaries may be in search for things you had promised to add to the life of whoever seek your kingdom first. They may be ready to waste their time in search for gold, silver and diamond. But my cry is to please You, bear souls and raise disciples for You this year. Some people may be ready to waste the year again as they did last year. But my solemn plea is: “Give me children lest I die!” Help me to maximize the year in doing things that touches Your heart. Give me children to bear for You this year, lest i die!
