HIS LOVE

"When you ask God for a gift,
Be thankful if he sends,
Not diamonds, pearls or riches,
but the love of real true friends."
- Helen Steiner Rice

Lord I praise you, for you are good
Sweet love for us sent from above
I thank you that your love never ends.

As I ponder the loving deeds of God
How you have led us by the straight path
You delivered me from distress and wrath.

You satisfy my yearning hearts desires,
My love for you, is like life's vast ocean wide
Filled with hope and faith where love abides.

You lift the needy out of their affliction
Your endless and unfailing love,
Like precious gold, you sent from above.
- Rose Bloomfield

                 
Speak to my heart, my beloved, my friend.
Show me who is this that obscures your plan?
Teach me to stand like the brave;
Speak to my heart, my beloved, my friend.

Speak to my heart, my beloved, my friend.
Enlighten my darkness, show me your plan.
You laid the earth's foundation; before the world began.  
Marked off its dimensions, as only you can!
Speak to my heart, my beloved, my friend.

Speak to my heart, my beloved, my friend.
You give orders to the morning.
You called light into existence; at your command
The earth takes its shape under your seal,
Speak to my heart, my  beloved, my friend.
Speak and I shall be glad and rejoice in you.
- Rose Bloomfield

What an encouragement to realize that God has reserved you and me for a special task in His great work. In His hands we're not only useful but priceless.
- Joni Eareckson Tada
