Praise God

we have, a direct line
To our Lord above
Who instanteously hears our prayers
He is the God of love
And when we come on bended knee
To bring Him our petitions
He loves to see the broken heart
Confessing sins admissions

When we err from Father's way
To do our will instead
He blesses with His chastening rod
He is our Living Head
Such a slip we think as minor
We think it insignificant
To Him it is a major error
He seeks us to repent

For in the Father's will we find
Life that is abundant
Why try to let the old flesh reign
When that should be redundant
For we are a new creation in Christ
Great gift of the Holy Spirit
Which He tells us not to grieve
But to submit, unto It

So live the life now given to you
Live unto the Master
If you need to increase your faith
It's something you can ask for
For God needs vessels fit for Him
Be ye therefore Holy
He gives richest blessings to His own
Both the high and lowly

Keep your mind stayed on Him
Enjoy His perfect Peace
Rest in the meditation of
He is our Sure release
Now we're free to serve the Lord
What Word we have to share
Go ye forth in Spirit filled power
Armed with fervent prayer

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
