I TOOK A NEW STEP

I Took a New Step
In Faith Today
It often happens
When I Pray.
For suddenly an
Idea Comes
To Me
And sets Me from doubt
completely free.

"You Can Do It",
It seems to say.
"If you make
Of Faith
A grand display".

"If you are not
Afraid to
go Ahead.
If You lose
All of Your
Dread"

"Seek and You
Shall find
In Prayer
The Strength
Which Will
Be needed
There".

"Ask and it
Shall be given
You
If to Jesus'
Ways
You are consistently
True".
I took a New Step
In Faith Today
It often happens
When I Pray.


KEEP GOD AS THE CENTER

Keep
God
As
The
Center Of
Your
Life
And
He
Will
lift it
from
All
It's
strife.


DEAR LITTLE TOWN
(Christmas Carol)

Dear Little Town
Where The Shepherds
Once Came
To give Praise and Glory
To His Holy Name...
To proclaim the Grace
of The Savior's Birth
That All Might
Know
of His Wondrous
Worth.
///Dear Little Town! ///
Where The Animals
Knelt
To show the reverence
Which they all
felt.
///Dear Little Town! ///
Where The Wise
Men Came
Bringing gifts
So Precious
In His Name.
Dear Little Town
Where the Angels
Sang
Their
"Gloria"
To His glad
Renown.
///Dear Little Town! ///
With its Manger
Bed.
Dear Little Town
Where a brilliant
Star led.
///Dear little Town! ///


TRANQUILLITY

My Life
Is tranquil As Calm Seas -
Filed With
Delights
As Summer's breeze
For All My Thoughts -
Are placed
In Him,
Who Gives
Me
In return,
His
VIM.


MY HAND IN THINE

My Hand in Thine
Is All I Ask
Unquestioning
I go.
It does not matter
Where , My Lord.
My Hand In Thine
Is All that I
Must Know.
My Hand in Thine,
Thy Hand in Mine - -
Nothing More Wonderful
Could Be!
There is NOTHING UP
AHEAD
That I need to SEE
But My Jesus Walking
All The WAY WITH ME!


STAR OF FAITH

Star of Faith,
Star of Light,
Star of Darkness,
Star of Night.

Star of Silver
Star of Gold,
Star that Guided
Men of Old.
Star that Gleamed
With such a Light!
Star that Led
Through the Night.

O, Wondrous Star,
Light our Way
To the Savior Today!






HAPPINESS

Most People
Are as Happy
As they Believe
They are.
They do not need
To Wish
Upon a distant
Star.
They count
Their Blessings
As They Come
And find that
Their true
Happiness
They have
Won.



THE GREAT GARDENER

The Great Gardener
Gives Me More
Of His Ways,
And I find This
To be one of
The Most Special
Of Days.

I go first
In The Mornings
To The Garden
Of Prayer
For I find
Deep refreshment
In My Spirit
There.


D ear Heavenly Father,
Bless This Day
And all The Things
That We Do
And Say.
In Jesus Name ,
Amen

(It's going
to Be
Great.)


EACH STEP WITH GOD

These have
not
Been easy
Paths
We have
Trod,
But we have
Learned
To take
Each step
With God.



HIS UNMISTAKABLE TOUCH

It is His Unmistakable
Touch - -
There is Not
A particle
Of doubt.
There is Something
About It
When It
Comes
That turns
Your Heart
Inside Out!
It is Something
That Touches
All of Me,
My Spirit,
body and
Soul.
It is Something
So Wondrous,
So Powerful
That it changes
My Whole life's
Goal.


LORD, I ASK NOT FOR RICHES

Lord,
I ask not,
For Riches
Of this earth.
For I have found
In Thee that which
Holds for Me,
True worth.
I do not ask,
For emeralds, diamonds
or gold,
But just the grace
That I may tell
others of Jesus'
Sweet Story of old.
I ask for just
The simple joy
of Heart
That will keep
Me ever
Of Christ's Life
A part.



I HAVE A FRIEND CALLED
JESUS

I Have Found a Friend
Called Jesus.
He walks with Me
Every Day.
Life is so simple
Following Him along
His Way.
