Stay On Course


God is Spirit
God is Light
God is Power
God is Might.

Follow His Will
and He will help you;
Show Him respect
and do the job He gave you.

For Biblical love is Respect
and such Respect is love,
So finish your life with respect
And your balance correct.

Then, with God's mission run,
and your assignment complete,
You will have nothing left
but judgement to meet.

And when your time has come,
depart with a smile:
knowing what you've done
has been well worthwhile...
Amen.

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
