Thank You, Lord!



"My God, I thank Thee who hast made the earth so bright,
So full of splendor and of joy, beauty and light;
So many glorious things are here, noble and right.


I thank Thee too, that Thou has made joy to abound,
So many gentle thoughts and deeds circling us round,
That, in the darkest spot on earth, some love is found.


I thank Thee more, that all our joy is touched with pain,
That shadows fall on brightest hours, that thorns remain;
So that earth's bliss may be our guide, and not our chain.


I thank Thee, Lord, that Thou has kept the best in store;
We have enough, but not too much to long for more-
A yearning for a deeper peace, not known before."
~ Adelaide A. Procter ~


Have a blessed and joyful Lord's Day!
