HIS LITTLE LAMP OF CLAY

 (To commemorate my 60th birthday)


Created by the Potter,
This little lamp of clay,
Though worn and chipped in places, 
Is put to use each day.

With oil He fills me daily, 
He sets the wick alight, 
I falter first and flicker, 
Then steadily burn bright.

The glow I know is feeble, 
But constant is its stream, 
With light sufficient just to take, 
A step in its soft beam.

Light enough for just one step, 
With perfect confidence, 
To fill the jar and trim the lamp, 
I trust His Providence.

The time will come when oil and wick, 
Will finally be spent, 
My little light will die on earth, 
To reignite in heaven.

GOD'S DIVINE TOUCH



Divinity is tangible,
In every Sacrament,
God touches man thru’ Christ His Son,
In His New Covenant.

The Sacraments alone provide,
The strength our spirit needs,
To overcome temptation as,
We live each day the Creed.

At Baptism the Gifts received,
Help us encounter Christ,
No longer slaves to sin we walk,
As children of the Light.

Empowered by God's Spirit,
Let us run the race,
So when our life comes to a close,
We’ll meet Christ face to face.

WILL YOU TRUST ME?



Will you trust Me,
When life seems an endless winter?
Will you trust Me,
Knowing not what lies ahead?
Will you trust Me,
When you do not sense My Presence?
Will you trust Me,
Though you fail to comprehend?

Will you trust Me,
When I tell you, "Be not troubled?
Will you trust Me,
When I say, “Be not afraid?”
Will you trust Me,
While believing all have failed you?
Will you trust Me,
Through the vinegar and gall?

I will because,
Your Word dwells richly in me. 
 I will because,
Your promises are true.
I will because,
You have commanded angels.
To ensure that no harm,
Shall draw near me.

I believe I dwell
In You Lord Jesus.
I believe my home
Is on Your breast.
I believe that neither
Snake nor dragon.
Would dare approach me

While I tarry there.
