My Lord Invited Me

When my life was long in aspiration

My Lord invited me to see His Eye.

When my life was long in dedication

My Lord invited me to feel His Heart.

When my life was long in surrender

My Lord invited me to sit at His Feet.

When my life was long in gratitude

My Lord invited me to sing with Him.
