Make Me A Lover


Make Me a True Lover

by Amy Carmichael

Mender of broken reeds,
O patient Lover,
‘Tis love my brother needs;
Make me a lover.
That this poor reed may be
Mended and tuned for Thee,
O Lord, of even me
Make a true lover.

Kindler of smoking flax,
O fervent Lover,
Give what Thy servant lacks;
Make me a lover.
That this poor flax may be
Quickened, aflame for Thee,
O Lord, of even me
Make a true lover.

~Is 42:3
