HE TOOK THE PAIN AWAY

He Lifted Me!
He took
The pain
Away.
His Message
Came
Straight
To My heart
And
Gave Me
A Glorious
Day,
And Made
Me
of HIS close
Family
A definite
Unmistakable
Part.

I SHALL WALK IN HIS STRENGTH

I Shall Walk
In HIS Strength
All the long Way.
I have No
Strength,
But HIS Strength
Holds ME
In HIS Sway.




NO RAIN, NO RAINBOWS

If Troubles
Did not Bring
the Rain
Into My life,
I should Never
Be Able
To See God's Great
Rainbows.
But Up above All of
My struggle
And Strife
Rise Their
Radiant Beauty...
Making Me
Sure
That HE
KNOWS.



I KNOW THE MOST BEAUTIFUL NAME

I know
The Most
Beautiful
Name
Yesterday, Today,
Forever
The Same.
It's JESUS!

I Know
A Name
Through Which
Many are Made
Whole,
Completely
Body, Mind and
Soul.
I know
A
Name
Which Echoes
Over Land
And Sea
And Which
With it
Brings
Glad Tidings
of Great
Victory!

I Know
A Name
Which has
A triumphant
All - conquering
Ring.
It's the Same
Most Beautiful
Name
To Which
The Angels
Sing.

I Know a Name
Which draws
God's Children
TO HIS FEET,
And Causes
Them
To grow More
Loving,
Gentle and
Sweet.
I Know A
Name
In
Which To
Give
of
Water
A Cup
Is As
Blessed
as
Asking
The
Savior
To Sup.

I Know
A Name.
Which Rings out
Like Ten Thousand
Bells!
It 's the beautiful
Name
Which Only
In The Humble
Dwells.
It's JESUS!
It's JESUS!
It's JESUS!




WINGS OF AN EAGLE

My Heart lifts
As though On
Wings of
An Eagle
When I settle
Down
To kneel in Prayer.
It does Not Matter
What trouble
Besets Me.
For I always
Find Jesus
There.
In Prayer
I can commune
With Him
And tell Him
What is Wrong!
I can lay
My troubles
At His Feet.
It is then that
I find
His Song!
And His Song
Is Ever
A Victorious
One...
Telling Me
Of His Joy
And is
Power.
I find such
strength
In This Communion
That all of
My troubles
Subside
Like shy wraiths
Before HIS
Majesty, strength and power
They simply
Begin to cower.
They cannot stand
Before HIS
Marvelous gaze
And promptly
Depart,
Leaving Only
HIS Peace
And Comfort
In My Heart!




PRAYER FOR THE LOST LAMBS

Reach Down
O Lord,
Thine Arm.
Thy Lambs
Have gone
Astray.
The brambles
Sharp
Have pricked
Them On
Their Way.
The Rocks
Have pierced
Their seeking,
wandering
Feet.
They cannot
Find Thy
Mercy Sweet.
Reach down
O Lord
Thine Arm.
Lift them
From Sadness,
Shelter
Them
From
Harm.
Grant
Them
Thy
Victory
Over
Life's
Grief
And
Pain.
Call Them
Thy Children.
Let Them
LIVE
Again.





JESUS COMES

Jesus Comes
When I Need
Him most
With HIS Loving
Care.
It is at these
Stressful times
That of HIS Reality
I am most
Aware.
Jesus Comes
When I Need
HIM Most
To bring Me
Gifts
of HIS Joy
And Love...
And of Every
Earthly Trouble,
To Carry Me
Above!
Just When I
Need Him Most
Jesus Comes!
Just When I
Need HIM
Most
I find that
He Is Here.
I Always Know
That When
I Need HIM
Most
He Will Come.
For To Me
He Is Always
Near!




THE LITTLE THINGS

Watch thyself With
Care in The Little Things
And The Great Things
Will turn Out Well,
For it is In The Little
Things
That The Great Things
Dwell.




SONG OF THE LARK

It told
Me
To Be
Ever
Brave and strong
and filled
with His
Victory
and His
Song.
I heard The Clear
High
Sweet
Voice
of
The
Lark.
It Led
Me
Valiantly
On
Through
The Dark.






THE MOCKINGBIRD'S SONG

Every Morn
I Hear
A Bird
Sweetly Singing ~
"Tweet Twa Twee",
"Tweet Twa Twee"
As it goes
Winging.
I Know Somehow
In My Inner Heart
There is a Message
In It
About My part
In God's Plan.
Every Morn
I Hear It ~
"Tweet Tweet
Twa Twee",
A Message
For Me.
May I Know
God's Plan
As I listen, listen,
Listen.
May the knowledge
Seep in
And glisten, glisten
Like a Pearl's Bright
Shining.
That I May Know
The Way
My Wondrous
Lord
Would have Me
go Today.
