TODAY

I do Not Worry -
I just Pray
About Everything
That concerns
Me
Today.

Of Tomorrow
I have
No deep Care.
I shall do
A good job
of it
When I get There.

And of Yesterday's
Burden or
Sorrow . . .
Today, I do Not
Wish to
Borrow.
T O D A Y
Is
Fresh
And
Shining
And
New.
Dear Lord, I
Present
It
Intact
To You.


FAITH IS LIKE A BIG UMBRELLA

Faith
Is like
A big Umbrella
Protecting Me
From storms
Of Wind
And Rain.
Because of It,...
When Life's
Blows
Fall,
I can scarcely
Feel
The pain.



BECAUSE OF YOUR LOVE

Because of your
Love,
Dear Lord,
Our future looks
Bright - -
Because of Your
Power
Shown in Our
Lives,
And Your Brightly
Shining
Light.



THE STRENGTH TO SOAR

God Alone
Can empower Us
With The Strength
To Soar.
The Strength
Which Will enable
Us
To help lift
The people
Of The World
Above their
Troubles - and
Lead them to
Jesus' Feet.
God alone can give
Us
The Strength to
Rise Up as Eagles,
Trusting Everything
In Our Upward
Flight to The
Almighty,
The Source of
Our Power
And Our
Comfort.




WITH A JOYFUL HEART

Where My Good Shepherd
Leads Me
I will follow
With a Joyful Heart,
For I Would Always
Of His Wondrous Life
be a Challenging
Part.

I Would Challenge
The People
Whom I Meet
To Come and Follow
HIM,
To leave All of
Their Sorrows
At Jesus' Feet
And then Watch
Them
Grow Dim.

I Would blaze
A Trail ahead
For Them
That They could
Not Mistake.
I would Ask
That They Give up
All Else
For HIS Sweet
Sake.

"Give up All to
JESUS",
I would Ask.
Save Nothing
For Yourself.
Put All of Your
Own Plans
Forever
On the shelf.

Where He leads Me
I will follow
With a joyful
Heart,
For I Would Always
Of HIS Wondrous
Life
Be a Challenging
Part.



IF YOU DON'T KNOW MY
SAVIOR

If You Do Not
Know
My Savior,
Then Come to
Him
Today.
He Will Gladly
Redeem You.
All you Need
Do
Is Confess
and Pray.

O HOLLY RED!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY , HEAVENLY KING.

Happy Birthday,
Heavenly King,
Thou Wee Babe
Lying asleep.
O'er Thy Manger
Cradle
We a glad Vigil
Keep.

Happy Birthday
Heavenly King!
We shall kneel
And Pray
As those dear
Eyes
Open to
The Light
Of Day.

Refrain:
O Holly Red!
And perfumes
Sweet
Thou shalt find
Lying
At Thy feet.

Happy Birthday,
Heavenly King,
Thy Glorious
Birth,
And by every
Act of Ours
Would proclaim
Thy immeasurable
Worth.

O Holly Red!
And Perfumes
Sweet
Thou shalt find
Lying
At Thy feet.

Happy Birthday,
Heavenly King
Thou Wee Babe
Lying asleep.
O'er thy Manger Cradle
We a Glad Vigil Keep.
