At Eighty-Three
Poet - Thomas Durley Landels

Thank God for life, with all its endless store
Of great experiences, of hill and dale,
Of cloud and sunshine, tempest, snow and hail.
Thank God for straining sinews, panting breast,

No less for weary slumber, peaceful rest;
Thank God for home and parents, children, friends,
For sweet companionship that never ends:
Thank God for all the splendor of the earth,

For nature teeming with prolific birth:
Thank God for sea and sky, for changing hours,
For trees and singing birds and fragrant flowers.
And so in looking back at eighty-three

My final word to you, my friends, shall be:

Thank God for life; and when the gift's withdrawn,
Thank God for twilight bell, and coming dawn.

Who Am I To Say
Poet: Grace N Crowell

We come to God by devious ways,
and who am I to say
That the road I take is the only road,
My way, the better way?

All earnest hearts that seek for God
can find Him like a flame,
Down every road, no matter what
his creed, or what his name.

So whether we may pause to pray
where great cathedrals shine,
Or in some little weathered church,
or at some wayside shrine,

The sincere travelers will arrive
where the welcoming home lights shine,
Although the countless thousands
take a different road from mine.

If God
Poet: James Montgomery

If God hath made this world so fair,
Where sin and death abound,
How beautiful beyond compare
Will paradise be found!

God Is Love
Poet: John McLeod, 1982

Trembling on my bough of indecision
No way seemed clear and safe to step upon,
I found no answer to my fevered questing
No rack to base my fumbling reasoning on.
And then I heard the soft words of another
That deep within I'd never sensed before,
Saying: God is Love, and Love is understanding,
And Faith the key that opens every door!

Thus, suddenly I was no longer wary
And taking new found courage from each word
I strode forth finding light to cheer and guide me
And all my fears seemed groundless and absurd,
This then is realization of His wisdom,
His Truth that will abide for evermore,
For God is Love, and Love is understanding,
And Faith the key that opens ever door!

The Sparrow's Fall
Poet: John McLeod, (c)

The sparrow's fall
Is seen by God above
For He sees all
For all within His love
And caring
Are protected, kept from harm
In sharing of the life-force
Brightly warm.

The sparrow's fall
Personifies our way
For we, like sparrows, fall
Each earth-bound day;
In truth, believe He cares
Though time grows still,
You pain He quietly shares
And ever will.

Let Us With A Gladsome Mind
Poet: John Milton

Let us, with a gladsome mind,
Praise the Lord, for He is kind:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

He with all-commanding might,
Filled the new-made world with light;
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

All things living He doth feed,
His full hand supplies their need:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

He His chosen race did bless
In the wasteful wilderness:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

He hath, with a piteous eye,
Looked upon our misery:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

Let us, then, with a gladsome mind,
Praise the Lord, for He is kind:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

The Keeper
Poet: John McLeod, 1980

The keeper at the gate of time
Waits patiently and ever
Keeps his vigil silently
His trust he will not sever
Nor will condemn the actions
When the sould strives unaware
But always will embrace in Love
And bless with silent prayer.

Poet: Lord Tennyson Alfred

Flower in the crannied wall,
I pluck you out of the crannies,
I hold you here, root and all, in my hand,
Little flower but if I could understand
What you are, root and all, and all in all,
I should know what God and man is.

The Glory That Is God
Poet: John McLeod, (c)

It's the kind word softly spoken
And the friendly laughter heard,
It's the smile of proffred friendship
And the heavy burden shared,
It's the gently hand that guides us
As each weary mile we plod,
It's the splendor of His giving
And the glory that is God!
