Keith Green’s Prayer

Before Keith Green died at the age of 28 in a plane crash in east Texas,keith green he penned dozens of hit songs and contemporary hymns. Green owned and rented seven houses in one neighborhood where he took in people in need, including former prostitutes, drug addicts, bikers, single moms, and homeless people.

Oh Lord, You’re beautiful

Your face is all I see

For when Your eyes are on this child

Your grace abounds to me

Oh Lord, please light the fire

That once burned bright and clean

Replace the lamp of my first love

That burns with holy fear

I want to take Your Word and shine it all around

But first help me just to live it, Lord

And when I’m doing well,

help me to never seek a crown

For my reward is giving glory to You.
