GOD’S BEST A. B. Simpson

  God has His best things for the few   Who dare to stand the test;God has His second choice for those   Who will not have His best.It is not always open ill   That risks the Promised Rest;The better often is the foe   That keeps us from God’s best.Some seek the highest choice,   But, when by […]

GOD’S SUPPORT AND GUIDANCE

Forsake me not, my God,      Thou God of my salvation!Give me Thy light, to be      My sure illumination.My soul to folly turns,      Seeking she knows not what;Oh! lead her to Thyself–      My God, forsake me not!

God Our Strength

Man, in his weakness, needs a stronger stay             Than fellow-men, the holiest and the best:

God’s Anvil

Pain’s furnace-heat within me quivers,             God’s breath upon the fire doth blow,

Glory to Thy Fathers Face Helen Maria Williams

Bread-on-the-run
