Let love take over when hate surrounds;
Let my heart be filled with love that abounds.
Let joy bring strength when I feel weak.
You’re all I need; Your face I seek.
Let peace take over that calms all strife;
Your peace from above, for You are my life.
O give me a heart, Lord, of longsuffering,
At times when I’m tested and tried to the brim.
Let gentleness, Lord, be a part of me.
Please mould me, as clay, to be all I should be.
Let goodness shine as the bright morning sun,
So darkness, by light, may be overcome.
Let faith come forth that will banish all fear.
Dispel all the doubts; let Your presence be near.
Let meekness, Lord, be what You will see.
Remove all earthly pride in me
Let temperance show ~ in all that I do.
Please help me to be a reflection of You
Each step of the way, in the journey I take,
Be exalted, dear Lord, for Your Name’s sake.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is
love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness,
faith, meekness, temperance:
against such there is no law”
(Galatians 5:22-23 KJV)
A day is coming, take heart, dear friend
A day when trouble at last shall end
When Christ shall gather together His own
To be with Him ever in heaven’s sweet home
When sorrowful tears He will wipe all away
When pain shall cease in that endless day
When loved ones again will see one another
Fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers
Aunts and uncles, daughters and sons
Grands and greats, everyone!
Where there will no more be clouds of the night
Where Christ, the heavenly Lamb, is the light
Where joy and gladness forever will reign
When Jesus our Saviour shall come back again
Keep walking with Jesus and never give in
Each day, He’ll give you the grace to win
That day is coming. Look up and be strong
Hold on to the end, for it won’t be long!
