An Old Poem, A new Desire

“And all of us, with our unveiled faces like mirrors reflecting the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the image that we reflect in brighter and brighter glory; this is the working of the Lord who is the Spirit.” II Corinthians 3:18 NJB

Make Me A Mirror

Make me a mirror, Lord,
Not a wall or a plain piece of glass;
I want people to see You in me,
Not just me in You.

Let them see Your dazzling beauty,
Blind them with Your light of glory;
I don’t want them to stop with me,
To see the stubble and miss the wheat.

Make me a mirror, God,
Not a preacher, not a teacher;
I want people to be transformed,
To become the image that they see.
David E. Ross
