NEVER LET ME GO ASTRAY

Never let Me
Go astray,
Never let Me
Lose Thy
Way.

Keep Me
close and firm
in Thy Love.
Guide Me safely
From Above.

For In Thee Alone
Am I secure.
In Thee Alone
Can I Life's
Rough blows
Endure.

MESSAGE OF PEACE

Come
Holy Spirit,
Thou
Wondrous Dove,
Fill My Cup
To Overflowing
With Thy pure,
Sanctified Love.
Make My Life
To shine
For JESUS,
and May My
Joy
In Him
Ever Increase,
As from All
My burdens
and Cares
I find in HIM
Complete, sweet
Relief..

THROUGH THE TEARS

Through the Tears
We see HIS grace.
Through the storms
We Know
That HIS Plan
Is to bring about
The uplift
and redemption
of Man.

POOR LITTLE SHEEP

Poor Little Sheep
Who have lost
Their Way!
Poor Little Sheep
Who have gone
Astray...
Poor Little Sheep!
Poor Little Sheep!

They have fallen
Into Chasms deep,
Dear Good Shepherd,
Come and Rescue
Your Sheep.
Poor Little Sheep!
Poor Little Sheep!

Come and lead
Them
Into Pastures
Green
Come and Them
From the World's
Ways wean.
Poor Little Sheep!
Poor Little Sheep!

Come and Call
Them
To follow
THEE
For All Time
and Eternity.

Come and set
Them Blessedly
Free!
Happy Little Sheep!
Happy Little Sheep!


WHEREVER YOU ARE

Wherever You are,
God shall sustain
You.
Whatever You Do,
He Is There.
Whatever Your
Leadings,
They shall be
Directly from
HIM,
As You keep
close to HIM
In Prayer.
(Sept. 18, 1989)


THE PLACE OF SUBMISSION

The Place of Submission
Is the One I seek,
For then
The Crossroad
I have passed.
It is at The Crossroad
That My Own Unbridled
Will
Finally breathes
It's last.
And after that all
My Directions
Come To Me
From Above.
In desert Country
Unexplored...
I find blossomings
Everywhere
Of God's Love.

JESUS IS COME

He is Come
With Healing
In His Wings
This to My
Waiting Heart
Sings!
He is Come
With Joy
To My Soul.

He is Come
In A Miracle,
He is Come
In a Miracle of Grace.
Almost seems
We catch
A glimpse
Of His
Wonderful Face.
And My Soul Rejoices!
Rejoices!
His Majesty
Is ever before
My Face.
His Love for Me
and those
I Love,
Nothing Can
Erase.
My Souls Rejoices!
Rejoices!
Rejoices!
In The Lord.

TROUBLED TIMES

At Troubled times
God seems to be
Closest.
He is Always Near
At times of
Stress and pain,
And invariably
He sends His
Angels
To paint My
Skies
With Rainbows
After He has
Sent The Rain.

SWEPT AWAY

Swept Away!
Swept Away!
All of Life's
Pain and doubt
Are Swept away.

For God
In HIS
Mighty Power
Has visited Me
In this Tranquil
Hour.
And with one swoop
of HIS hand
Has said
To All My Troubles
"Disband".
Now they seem
So small
In HIS great Sight,
So far they
Have taken
Flight.


MY TROUBLES

My Troubles
Just Turn
Into Pretty
Bubbles
As in
A Blue Sky
They Float Away!

Where
They may
Have Gone
I cannot Say!

My Troubles
Just Turn
Into Pretty
Bubbles
As in
A Blue Sky
They Float Away!


I HAVE A HAPPY HEART

I have a Happy Heart
Today.
It feels so Lighted
As I Pray...
And All the Good
That is in the World
Seems to come to Me
As Though a Flag is Unfurled
In Victory.
(Sept. 89)


THE BLUE OF THE SEA

The Blue Of The Sea
Is So fascinating to Me
This Bright Morning.
I Cannot keep My Eyes
Away.
For it's loveliness so
Melts My Heart that I Want
To Kneel and Pray.

TAKE EACH STEP WITH GOD

There have
Been
Sufferings
And
Sadnesses.
There have
been
Blessings
That have brought
Joys
Like perfume of flowers
Rare.
These have
Not
Been easy
Paths
We have
Trod,
But We have
Learned
To take
Each step
With God.

THE UNMISTAKABLE TOUCH

It is His Unmistakable
Touch - -
There is not
A particle
Of doubt.

There is Something
About It
When It
Comes
hat turns
My Heart
Inside Out!

It is Something
That Touched
All of You,
Your Spirit
And Body
And Soul.

It is Something
So Wondrous,
So Powerful
That it Changes
My Whole life's
Goal.

More than
Ever Before
You just
Want
To sit
At JESUS'
Feet.

Where You
Thought
You were
Close
To HIM
Before,
He is Now
Even
More
Preciously
Sweet.

It's The
Touch
Of The
Master,
The Touch
Of
The Good
Shepherd,
The King
Over
All Kings.

It is the Healing
Touch
Of The Great
Physician,
It is the Caress
Of The Living Father.

It is The mighty Touch
Of The Conqueror,
The Great Overcomer
It is God's
Umistakable Touch.
It is a Joy
And a Surrender
Of All.

It is a Knowing
He has delivered
Me
Through every
Danger that Would
Befall.

I NEED YOU

Lord,
I Need You.
I am so
Inadequate -
So Weak,
So humble
So forlorn.
I would be
Nothing
if from THY
Radiant Presence
My life Were
Shorn.


TELL SATAN TO PACK UP AND LEAVE

Just tell
Satan
To pack up
And leave - -
All he
does
Is give
Pain
And deceive.

A Master
of deception
Is he
As he stalks
around
Seeking Whomever
Haply by him
can be
found.

Just send Satan
Firmly far
Away,
For it is
JESUS
ONLY
Who Controls
All of
Your
Life
This Day!

What is
he
Doing
Here anyway,
With God
So Near?
JESUS , HIS
SON,
Now Releases
You from
All Your
doubt
and Fear.
