I AM HAPPY IN JESUS ALL THE DAY LONG


I am Happy In JESUS
All The Day Long,
For All The Day Long
I Hear HIS Sweet
Song.
In a flower's delicate
Bloom
I see His Face,
And this does for Me
Much of My pain
Erase.
In the Song of a Bird
I hear His Wondrous
Word.
I am happy In Jesus
All The Day Long
For All The Day Long
I Hear HIS Sweet
Song,
HIS All ~ Conquering,
HIS Triumphant
Song!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This Song came back
To Me Today,
Bringing Peace To
My Heart...
Down Here in Quemchi,
(Chiloe Island, Chile)
The Place of The
Black Winged.
Seagulls:

August, 1991

LIKE THE SEA GULLS

Like the Sea Gulls Along
The Quemchi Shore
I will Be...
Strong and Happy,
And Confident
and Free.

They feel God's Guiding,
Presence
Ever Near,
And Bright - eyed
Face Each Day
Without a Fear!




WHAT A FRIEND TO ME
IS JESUS!

What a Friend To Me
Is Jesus!
O, How Loving,
Kind and Sweet.
How He helps
Me
With All Problems,
And does All
My Sorrows
And Troubles
Quietly defeat.

He teaches Me
To have Patience
With Others
Who Might seem
To be failing Me.
He tells Me to
Leave All to Him,
And He Will set
Me FREE.

What a Friend
To Me Is
JESUS!
O, How Loving,
Kind and Sweet!
All My Sorrows and
Troubles - He Will
Quietly Defeat.

Quemchi, Chile,
July 26, 1991




STAR OF HOPE

Star of Hope -
Star of Light,
Star that Shines
Through the Night.
Star that gleamed
With such a
Light.
Star of Silver
Star of Gold,
Star that
guided
Men of Old.
Oh, Wondrous
Star,
Light Our
Way
To The Savior
Today.




GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU

God will take Care of You.
Never fear.
He is Aware of You.
He is Near.

God Understands.
He Knows of
Every rough Wind
In Your Life that blows.
He Knows When
Tempests rise,
And When tears
Fill Your Eyes.

He Knows, and This
Thought brings to
My Heart the
Sweetest Rest,
As though in a
Storm's lull
A Bird flies
Straight to It's
Safe, sure Nest.
God Knoweth Best.
He does Know Best.



TRANQUILLITY

My Life is Tranquil
As Calm Seas-
Filled With delights
As Summers's breeze.
For All My Thoughts
Are placed in Him
Who gives Me in return
His Vim.




IN THE STILLNESS

In The Stillness,
In The Stillness,
God reveals
To Me
HIS Plan.
It is For
The Uplift
And The
Salvation
of Man.



I NEED YOU MY CHRIST

I Need You, My
Christ.
I Need You Every
Hour.
I Need Your
Strength,
I Need Your
Mighty Power.
I Need you
O, I Need
You
My Christ!



GOD TAKES AWAY

God Takes Away
That He May
Give. This is
The Way He Teaches
Us the Way He
Would have Us
Live!



ADVERSE WAYS
I have learned
That adverse Ways
Bring Strength
Through Loss,
That My Life is
More Used
By Thee after
Burns away
The dross.



THANKSGIVING BLESSING

Dear Father,
We Thank Thee that
We are gathered here with Those
We Love and hold so Dear,
We Thank Thee for This
Bounteous Food, but More
For Thine abundant Love.
We ask thy Blessing
From Above.
But Most of All, Father
grant that We
May spend Eternity
With
Thee.





HOME

Go back for
Some Pumpkin Pie,
Oh there's No
Place like Home
for the Holidays.
O for the Holidays You Can't
Beat Home Sweet Home.
O, go Back For Some
Pumpkin Pie!





I HEAR THE VOICE OF AN ANGEL

I Hear the Voice of an Angel,
Calling from Heavenly gates
And, as it reaches My Soul
Every question and Sorrow
Abates.

I Hear the Voice of an Angel
Bidding Me just to Believe
That God in Most radiant
Glory
Holds out gifts
For Me to
Receive.

I Hear the Voice of
An Angel
Asking Me always
To Share
So that My Dear Ones
May know Him
Who gladly
Their Burdens
Will Bear.

I Hear The Voice
of An Angel
Calling from Heavenly
gates
And as it reaches

My Soul
Every question
And Sorrow
Abates.




MY ANGEL OF POESY

My Angel
Comes On Golden Wings
To Lift Me
From Every
Care, from
Every feeling
of Discouragement, Up
from Every
Despair!



AN ANGEL COMES

My Angel Comes
O Flashing Wings
To lift My Every
Care.
I only needs Must
Breathe
A Seeking, Heartfelt
Prayer.
A Flash of Wings
Comes fluttering...
And there is
A Song
On The Air!
Hush, My Weary
Heart...
Forget Every
Sadness and
Care.


MY LOVELY LADY OF POESY

My Lovely Lady of Poesy
Walks With Me Above
The Beauty
Of The Shining Sea.

My Heart is Lifted
In The Joy of Song...
As I Make My Wish ~
That This Day at
The Sea
May seem Wonderfully
Long!



ONE STEP AT A TIME

Let's just Go a Step
At a Time ~
This is why I Make
A Rhyme...
Because I Know It
Is Far Better that
I go a Step - Just One
Step... at a
Time!



ODE TO THE GRAND CANYON

O Marvel of Singing Space...
Citadel of the Sun,
The Moons Cathedral,
Temple Where Human Hearts
Rise Up
Forever
To a Higher
Place...
Lair of Wild Beast
In Whose Far reaches
And Mist-held depths
Time's Footsteps long
Were stilled....
---------------------


Here Man's seeking Eyes
His searching Hearts,
Find a Feast


----------------------
Far spaces, Star - drenched,
Moon - Washed,
Caressed by the
Sun
Shelter from Life's
Swiftening pace...
Symbol of the Eternal
One.
Whose Morn holds
In Praise It's
Early Choir,
and Evening deepens
Into tender Shadows
of His own Sweet,
Holy Mystery.
God seems to
Breathe Here
With His full
Strength
To Inspire...
Where tall stone
Pinnacles
Point to Heaven.
And across The
Illimitable stretches
of Time
Unfolds for
Man
A more Joyous
Destiny...
And a Higher!
