A Writer's Prayer

(If one replaces "book" with "blog," this works just fine as a blogger's prayer too. Amy Carmichael's "Take This Book" opens the anthology Mountain Breezes and her long book on her life in India, Gold Cord.)

Take this book in Thy wounded hand,
   Jesus, Lord of Calvary;
Let it go forth at Thy command;
   Use it as it pleaseth Thee.

Dust of the earth, but Thy dust, Lord;
   Blade of grass, in Thy hand a sword--
Nothing, nothing unless it be
   Purged and quickened, O Lord, by Thee.
