Who’d listen to God’s call,
Not knowing where his path would lead
Or troubles to befall.
I could not lead like Moses did
All through the wilderness
The disobedient Israelites,
Nor want to, I confess.
I was not blessed with Samson’s strength,
This mighty man of power,
Who killed a host of Philistines
Within his final hour.
Delilah’s beauty I don’t have,
But maybe that is good.
She was not known as someone who
Behaved the way she should.
I am not patient like Job was
When he was in despair,
Though I’d not like to have his friends;
They’d be too much to bear.
I cannot sing and play the harp
Nor write a lovely Psalm,
Like David with his gift of words,
That are a healing balm.
I’m not as wise as Solomon,
Whose fame spread far and wide
For wisdom from the Lord he had,
And all his wealth beside.
Isaiah was a man of God,
With wondrous prophecy.
I do not know what lies ahead,
But trust God; He can see.
I’m not as brave as Daniel was
While in the lion’s den.
Upon his knees he prayed to God,
Who answered there and then.
With all these attributes I lack,
How sad it seems I’d be,
But I was made by God’s own hand;
I’m happy being me.
