glowing with divine desire,
serving the Lord for all to see,
but He had different plans for me.
Instead, I serve behind the scenes,
in a role of much lesser means,
often unnoticed, not well known,
and at times just a bit alone.
I know the last will be made first,
that prideful vanity is accursed.
Then why do I still desire acclaim,
in the disguise of His Holy Name?
Lord, please help me to be content
to remain in the role You sent,
to sit in the back, without despair,
knowing You have put me there.
And during the times I feel alone,
when my spirit's like a stone,
come to me and to heal my heart,
while I play the smaller part.
