You Are My Lord

Lord, put me in spiritual blinders to see
What needs to be done in front of me,
Without a glance at what others do,
For each must answer as servant to you.

Lord, keep me from judging my brother’s work,
And let me not my own labor shirk;
My field is small, and short is my row,
But you are my Lord who will cause it to grow.
