|Photoshop of a painting by Sir Frederick Leighton|
then to the canvas, dipping a brush
in just the right mix of colors...
And with skilled strokes, some swift
and some painstakingly, carefully made,
there comes to life a face, a scene, a 'scape...
With such fine strokes, Lord, paint me to be
the person imaged in your mind's eye
since long before all time began...
With your soft brush tease out the beauty
your eye finds so deep within me:
let me see what you see, Lord...
With your palette knife give texture
to the contours of my being and make bold
what I'm so quick to hide, deny and mute...
Stretch the canvas of my soul, Lord,
and paint upon it what you made my life
to be and to become...
And make me grateful for your artistry,
the masterpiece you want to make
of all I am and all I have...
