My prayer

O Jehovah, my God of comfort
Do give ears to my humble prayer
& to thee my own cry will come,
thy mercy, thy kingdom ‘d come.

O Jah, thy name ‘d stand forever
& do forgive me my own errors,
& those erring & making fool of me
help me run the race of endurance.

O Jah, so not to forget thy doing,
Help me with all my heart to yearn
that my faith & service may grow,
& thy blessing, kindness & mercy rise

The days ‘re hard, rotten & wicked
Foes ‘re well aware of my weaknesses
O God, help me to fend these enemies,
empower to eat thy words days & night.

for all thy gifts & undeserved kindness,
all sweet bread & wine lay at my table.
All the weeping, wonders & mercies
My heart give thank to thee.
In Jesus name! Amen

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
