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.

MY LORD AND MY GOD - Psalm 59 : 17-19


17 But I will sing of your might;  in the morning I will sing of your love.
 For you have been a fortress to me,  a refuge in time of distress. 
18 O my Strength, I will sing praises to you, for you, O God, are my strong­hold; 
you are a loving  God.
I will sing your praises Lord,
My strength, my shield, my guide,
My God You are my Stronghold,
My Fortress, my Delight.

In times of tribulation,
To You my voice I've raised,
In You I found safe harbor,
You heard each time I prayed.

With just a word You bid the storms,
To cease and they were stilled,
God's solemn vow to live in me,
Through You has been fulfilled. 

I shelter 'neath Your mighty wings,
And laugh just like a child,
Who knows no fear for Love is near,
And in Love’s heart abides.
