A poem for encouragement

Unwearying Spirit

Now finally I am broken Lord,
And here I am, I can't even stand. 
You'll have to feed me Word by Word. 
And carry me into the promised land.  

"Teach my soul all it should have known,  
Years and years ago,  
There's just so many things I don't understand,  
Explain, teach and show!

" I've got scars on my fingers, 
As surely all can see, 
The memory of them lingers, 
Of wounds suffered for Thee. 
 
"Teach my soul all it should have known,  
Years and years ago,  
There's just so many things I don't understand,  
Explain, teach and show!" 

The road is so dusty I want to give up, 
But my feet keep on treading Your way, 
I have drank the dregs of misery's cup, 
But You give me the power to stay.  

"Teach my soul all it should have known, 
Years and years ago, 
There's just so many things I don't understand, 
Explain, teach and show!" 

A love that defies prisons coldest bars, 
And a heart that keeps beating in pain, 
Wounds being reopened, yet not leaving scars, 
Jesus make me worthy of Thy Name.  

"Teach my soul all it should have known,  
Years and years ago,  
There's just so many things I don't understand,  
Explain, teach and show!"
