My Singing Is a Prayer

My singing is a prayer, O Lord
A prayer of thanks and praise;
In music, Lord, I worship thee;
Thy beauty fills my days.

I give my talents, Lord, to thee,
My mind and heart and voice,
For thou alone art worthy, Lord;
In thee I do rejoice.

Accept the worship of my heart,
Accept my music, too:
Help me to live always for thee,
Lord, keep me strong and true.

O bless me, Lord, and help me sing
Thy love so full and free;
And bless all those who listen, Lord,
Help them to worship thee.
