There are more English words beginning with the letter “s” than any other letter of the alphabet. According to a two second Google search, there are exactly 76,816 “s” word entries in the dictionary. Well then, given the number of words I have to choose from, this should be fun.
Sensational are Your commands;
I want to submit to them all.
Shining light spills out of each page;
I’m slow, but You get through to me.
Similar to a panting dog,
I long for a drink from the Word.
Spare me the spanking I deserve,
but let Your grace reign, like always.
Show me how to walk by Your word
so sin doesn’t boss me around.
Save me from cruel injustice,
so I can stay in step with You.
Smile down on Your humble servant;
I’m ready and willing to learn.
Some days I can’t keep from sobbing,
when I see open rebellion.
