Lord make me a bridge, let others walk on me – may I never be a block, though You gave me liberty.
free from the law, I’m a servant of grace – but a block prevents others from seeing Your face.
a bridge lays down, making a way for all – a block causes others to stumble and to fall.
may I never be a stumbling block by doing whatever I can – while my brother needs a bridge to walk according to Your plan.
In You, Lord, I have freedom to do so many things – help me choose to be a bridge, though I desire wings.
may I help my brothers more by laying down my liberty in this life – than by standing as a stumbling block, which can only lead to strife.
In my liberty let me choose what helps my brother not to loose – his faith, his way, nor cause him doubt – that’s not what liberty’s about.
this liberty Lord, You’ve given me, not just for me alone – may I use it only if it strengthens my brother on his long journey home.
so a stumbling block upon no man’s path, may I ever be – let me be the bridge lying down in the gap, making clear the way to Thee.
“Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother’s way. (Romans 14:13)
sincerely, Grace Day
