Lord, I am not ashamed,
of the hope that lives in me.
I wear my faith openly,
for all the world to see.

You asked me to be the light,
to shine Your Word upon my path.
So, I share Your truth knowing,
at me they'll scorn and laugh.

I am not intimidated,
by the words and thoughts of man.
Instead, I rejoice in the knowledge,
You will finish what You began.

You asked me to be the salt,
to spread Your favor on the earth.
So, I tell the story on my way,
of their sin, Your life, new birth.

I am not afraid,
or concerned what man may do.
For I know that I am Yours,
and they canít take me from You.

You asked me to follow You,
in every act and deed.
I do so willingly because I know,
You will help me as I need.

I am not beaten,
although man may think heís won.
For I've seen the Crown of victory,
upon my Lord, the Christ, Your Son.

You asked me to be faithful,
my trust in You remains.
I know You will walk with me,
on the narrowest of these planes.

Lord, I am not ashamed,
despite how man wants me to feel.
The Good News is my life,
and Your love I canít conceal.

This is a lovely poem. It reminds me of the song Here I Am

Great use of the topic throughout this faith-filled, beautiful poem.
One tiny correction: "planes" should be "plains" in the second to last verse.

Highly scriptural and very practical poem. Can work a little more on rhyming I think. Do keep writing!
