TITLE (EDIT)
Lord Make Me Like A Buoy
DESCRIPTION
I wrote this poem at a time when one of my adult children was going through a serious trauma. The Buoy concept came to me as a way of expressing an abstract idea in more concrete terms.

Lord Make Me Like A Buoy
Lucybee Cartwright

Lord, let me like a buoy be,
But keep me firmly tied to thee;
Fixed on thee my line 'bide true,
Ne'er drift too far on bounding blue:

Floating up there, gently bobbing,
Pulse of tide, swishing, throbbing.
Living Waters 'neath me flow,
Gently bobbing to and fro.

Ne'er let me go, turn with the tide,
Nor in bold draft of ship so wide,
Lose sight of what my Lord can make
Of craft so small, for His own sake.

May storms of those I love too much
Ne'er drag me down the depths to touch.
Lord, keep me floating way up there,
Be tempest foul, or weather fair.

For if I plunge dark depths below,
I shall not aid that other soul
To reach the Light of Son above
Who bathes us in His light of love.
 
Lord, let me like a buoy be,
Let not thy lamp go dim in me;
Keep me bright all ships to see,
For Lord, this light belongs to Thee!

O Lord, make me now a buoy like,
Nor ship, nor man, some reef may strike:
A marker placed to tell the way,
Keep me bobbing all the day.

Away up there atop the swell
Anchored to the Rock - ALL'S WELL!
Away up there atop the sea,
Lashed to Him, I'm bound, yet free.
