Shifting Gears

Not an ounce of preach
Or push here
Not a witness
Or a woo
You have everything in hand Lord
And so often I just “do”
Do the thing
That comes to mind first
Though the Spirit
Is all hush
Do the service
All presumptuous
Do it in some fleshly rush.
But those days
Must surely end now
Let the wonder fill my mind
Let the praises get first billing
With all striving left behind.
