Lift Me Not Too High

Lift me not too high, Lord, lest I fall in love with this life and hope in its endurance.

Keep my life with its bumps and barriers, so I seek your guidance and long for your comfort and presence.

Please don’t break my spirit, Lord, as I need hope near enough to press on.

Grant me some free and open road, Lord, with moments to sustain me.

But lift me not too high, lest I forget the road is narrow.

Show me the purity of Love, Lord, so I can long and strive to dwell there.

And give me just a glimpse, Lord, of what perfection looks like.

For the temporal is fading and the revelation is upon us.

Lift me not too high, Lord, lest I’m too glad to hope.
