O Key of David
Come, O Key of David, come!

Open me as much as welcome in, to obtain
each grace and blessing that is yours to present…
Include the important thing to my thoughts, Lord,
and open my chaos and confusion
to the peace and serenity of your presence…
Include the keys to my issues, Lord:
open the doorways of my coronary heart and lead me out
and the consolation I discover in your organization…
Include the important thing to my selfishness,
unlock what’s hoarded, hidden in my coronary heart,
in my pockets, my purse and in my financial institution:
open my loads to these in need
for Lord, I do know, I’ve greater than I want…
Include the important thing to my hope
and free me from self-pity and despair:
unlock the chains that maintain me in worry
and open my coronary heart to belief as soon as once more…
Include the important thing to my emotions, Lord
and unlock my grudges and resentments,
the chips on my shoulder, issues huge and small
conserving me a prisoner of my very own feelings:
set me free in peace of thoughts and coronary heart…
Come, give us the keys to open the doorways
that imprison the unjustly accused!
Give us the keys to open the doorways
that maintain us in and and others out!
Give us the keys that open our hearts
to creating peace the place now there’s solely conflict!
Give us the keys to your kingdom, Lord,
On this holy Introduction time and in each season, Lord,
on day by day and thru every night time:
flip the important thing and open the place you retain for me
inside your loving coronary heart…
Defend me, Lord, whereas I am awake
and watch over me whereas I sleep
that awake, I would maintain watch with you
and asleep relaxation in your peace…
