georg-blavrockLord God, I will praise you
Now and forever
For You have given me the faith
Through which I might know You!
You sent me Your holy Word,
which, by Your great grace
I find remains in me.

I have accept You
As You know well, O Lord
Nothing will return empty
I hope, strengthen my spirit
That I may know Your will
This makes my heart
Cry out joyously.

Therefore I will praise
and glorify You eternally
Your name is high above
You always show Yourself
to be a loving Father
You will not forsake me
You have chosen me as Your child.

- George Blaurock, Anabaptist martyr (1492-1529)

One thought on “I Will Praise You: A Prayer of George Blaurock”

  1. Arthur Sido says:

    A wonderful prayer, thank you for posting it. We too often ignore the Anabaptists in the church and are poorer for it.
