SERENITY

Lord, THOU Art Altogether Lovely.
THOU movest through Our Lives
With More Grace Than The Swan ~
And as a Great Golden Ship
Sailing through the rough
Waters, Calming and conquering
Them as THOU Goest! Thy
fragrances are like Fair
Blue Violets and fresh
Pure Lilies,
And Thy Golden Touch
Is the greatest Reward
I can Ever KNOW.

THERE'S MUSIC IN MY HEART

There's Music In My
Heart.
And it does not
Depart
But plays on all
Day long just like
A Lark's Uplifted
Song.
It is Music to
My King,
Master of Everything.
My Sovereign Lord,
Who does to Me
Every Grace
Accord.



LORD, BLESS THIS DAY

Lord, Bless This Day
Which THOU
Hast made.
Be it Sunlit Or
Cloud - filled
May I Never
Be afraid.



I AM GOING DOWN TO THE SEA TODAY

I am Going Down To The Sea
Today
For the air is balmy
And sweet,
And something there is
Calling Me -
Something I Must Go
To Meet!

(Sept, 13, 1989)




COME TO HIM

Wouldn't You Too
Want Him
In Your Heart?
Wouldn't You Too,
Want Never from
Him to part?

Then come to
Him
In Joy and Praise,
And HE will
Brighten
All Your Days.




THE GREAT GARDENER

Life is like
A Garden
And the Great
Gardener
Is God.
Over every plot
of ground
He is free
To Trod.

He tills the
Soil
Plants the
Seeds
and stooping
down
pulls up
The Weeds.

Then He
Smiles
as He
Sees flowers
blooming
Here and There,
Their Faces
lifted as
though
In Prayer.

He pauses beside
A delicate Flower
It's face turned
Toward the Sky.
He says, "I will
Take you Home
With Me Today.
At my right arm -
there still
Is Room".

And Angels sweetly sing as
They bear the Flowers
Along;
While from Everywhere
Surrounding Comes
The loveliness
Of Song.
