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.
`

BUILD WITH PLEASANT STONES

Build Your life
With Pleasant
Stones,
And let
The structure
Not be Marred

By gruff ways
impatient
Tones.
Words which
Upon other
Hearts
May have sadly
Jarred.
Use instead
The pleasant
Stones
of Encouragement
And Cheer
Filled With
HIS Joy
And Grace. . .
Words Which
Will bring
special Happiness
and a smile
To Another's
Face.
Build With
Pleasant stones
A structure
Of Character
Fine and rare.
Build unto
ME,
Your Beloved
Lord,
A Building
Bright
And Fair.

Build With
Pleasant Stones
That their

shining beauty
Many others
May See,
And Seeing . . .
Know
beyond a doubt
That You
Have
Been
With
ME.

BREAK LOOSE

Break loose
From Satan's bonds
In Jesus'
Lovely Name!
Yesterday, Today,
Forever
He Is Just
The Same.
He heals
The sick
Who to touch
His White garment
Seek.
He forgives
The sinner
Who but
To Him comes
Lonely and
Meek.
Break loose
From Satan's
Hold
Upon your life.
Jesus is The Way!
He will lift
You
From
All strife.
He will
Heal
You,
Free You
From
All sin
And
Pain.
Because
He died
For You,
You can
Rise
Up
In
Newness
of
Life
And
Live
Again!
Break Loose
From Satan's
Destructive bonds
about you
In Jesus'
Lovely Name.
For JESUS CHRIST
Is Yesterday
Today and
Forever
Just The Same!

WE ONLY WANT JESUS

We only Want
Jesus.
We have No room
At all
For The evil
One.
Every room
In our lives
Is filled
With Jesus;
We have No room
For Worry,
We have No
Room
For Doubt.
We have No room
For anything
That Satan
Shouts about.

And Wherever
We travel
Goes with Us
The glory
of the
Lord.
We wear
The shield
of Faith,
And We Carry
With Us
His Two edged
Sword.

Wherever
We Travel
We take with Us
The glory of
The
Lord!

To My soul.

In a Miracle
Of Grace.

Catch a glimpse
Of His Face.

Of Grace.

GOD BLESS THIS DAY

God Bless This Day
Which THOU
Hast made.
Be it sunlit
Or cloud -filled
May We Never
Be Afraid.
May We just
Turn it all
Over
To Thee -
And thus
Find ourselves
Radiant, joyful
Victorious and
F R E E.

O WHAT A GLORIOUS MORNING!

O What a glorious
Morning!
O What a Lovely
Day!
For I lifted My heart
Up to God
And I Know
That HE
Heard
Me
Pray.

`

ONLY BELIEVE

Believe.
Miracles
And Faith
Take place.
The door of Heaven
Is opened wide
To assure us
of God's Grace.

Believe!
And Wonders
Shall take place
As of yore.
For God stands back
of HIS Promises
as surely
As Ever Before.
`
MY HAND IN THINE

I
Suppose
That
I Shall
have
My Share
of Joy and
Woe.
Yet All
Seems
clothed
in
Glory
As I
go-
Somehow
Divine-
Because
I find
My hand
held fast
In
THINE
`
HE LIFTED ME

He lifted Me
Above
My Load
Of Care
And all
I had to
Do
Was to send
Him
A prayer!

He lifted Me
Above all sadness
And doubt,
And now
of Every Fear
I find Myself
Joyously
Without.
`
MY HEART IS CALM

My heart
Is Calm
As the gentle
Meadowbrook
Because HE
Refers
Me
To The Greatest
Book.
