Today... 'Blessing for All Nations'
Through Jesus all the nations shall be blessed
for the Son of God is their Righteousness.
Great Blessing for All Nations by Gods' grace
for Gentiles shall be justified by faith.
His blessèd name forever shall endure
when the sun and the moon shall be no more.
There all nations come together as one
Jew and Gentile united by Gods' Son.
United in Christ shall we ever be
one in Him throughout all eternity.
Every tongue and kindred shall be there
and His glorious kingdom all shall share.

each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
