Perfect Light

“Star of wonder, Star of night,

Star with royal beauty bright,

Westward leading,  Still proceeding.

Guide us to thy

Perfect Light

Peace On Earth

“Peace I leave with you,

My peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you.

Let not your heart be troubled,

Neither let it be afraid.”

John 14:27

How Long?

O LORD, how long will You forget me? Forever?

How long will You look the other way?

How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul,

With sorrow in my heart every day?

How long will my enemy have the upper hand?

Turn and answer me, O LORD my God!

Restore the sparkle to my eyes, or I will die.

Don’t let my enemies gloat, saying, “We have defeated him!”

Don’t let them rejoice at my downfall.

,,,I trust in Your unfailing love.

I will rejoice because You have rescued me.

I will sing to the LORD because

He is good to me.”

Psalm 13
