In Spite of Mood

Lord of all, you love in spite of mood —
What joy to know that what I feel —
With constant ups and downs — my attitude
Does not reflect your mind — your love is real.

Your mercy cheers me — grace, that daily morsel —
I, like the sparrow hopping on the ground,
With beak dipping here and there for his portion —
What wells of peace and strength in Christ I’ve found!

So raise me up from little dips of sorrow —
This foolish heart so heavy with its burden —
For Jesus is the same today, tomorrow!
Remind me of the Savior’s blessed mountain!

Our Desire

To you belong the power and praise,
O Ancient of Days!
No season, age, or dawn confines
Your eternal times!

Your grace is high — let no one miss
That heavenly bliss!
Our blackened root of bitterness
We soon confess!

To know your love is our desire,
Our zealous fire!
Our souls renew, our bodies raise
To joyfully praise
Your righteous ways.

O Savior, Come to Us

Eternal God, Lord over all, the One
To whom we owe both life and breath,
Reveal your love to us in the Son,
To know its height and width and depth.

O Savior, come to us, abide
In mercy with your humble creatures;
Your words of power our surest guide,
Your many works our able teachers.

For us your presence is all we need,
Our only good and pure delight;
Upon your healthy grace we feed,
To keep our holy Lord in sight.

Freedom, wisdom, ways, love

Thank you, Creator of man’s free will, for our freedom. May we never take it lightly. May we never misuse it. May we employ it for the salvation and edification of many.

Give me wisdom, Lord, that I may always choose what is good and sound and spiritual. May my choices always reflect your holiness and goodness. Continue reading
