Now is the time to love, and, better still,
To serve our loved ones, over passing ill
To rise triumphant ; thus the perfect flower
Of life shall come to fruitage : wealth amass
For grandest giving ere the time be gone.
Be glad to-day, to-morrow may bring tears;
Be brave to-day, the darkest night will pass,
And golden rays will usher in the dawn:
Who conquers now shall rule the coming years.
The lily's lips are pure and white without a touch of fire;
The rose's heart is warm and red and sweetened with desire.
In earth's broad fields of deathless bloom the gladdest lives are those
Whose thoughts are as the lily and whose love is like the rose.
I expect to pass through this world but once.
Any good therefore what I can do or any
kindness that I can show to any fellow
creature, let me do it now.
Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not
pass this way again.
You love the roses - so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be
Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!
If Spring came but once in a century,
instead of once a year,
or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake,
and not in silence,
what wonder and expectation there would be in
all hearts to behold the miraculous change.
Never a trial that He is not there,
Never a burden that He does not bear,
Never a sorrow that He does not share,
Moment by moment I'm under His care.
Moment by moment I'm kept in His love,
Moment by moment I've light from above,
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, 0 Lord, I am Thine.
It's the little bit of sunshine
Lighting up the dullest day,
That brings a glow of pleasure
As we journey on Life's way.
It's the simple things that please us
Like a willing kindness done,
That son blow away each storm-cloud
'Till once more we see the sun.
What's your point of view.
Is life a bore?
Or is it the kicks?
Maybe its fate.
Let's think again.
Let's check our shelve.
What does it all mean?
Is life a field of green?
Or do you need to clean?
Life can be plenty!
If you stop and,
Be happy as any.
The friendship of the good and true
Is more to me than gold,
And, while I welcome one that's new
I'll treasure well the old;
Old friends are like the goodly tree
Whose leafy branches throw
A grateful shelter over me
When adverse winds may blow!
The world is full of gladness,
There are joys of many kinds,
There's a cure for every sadness,
That each troubled mortal finds.
And my little cares grow lighter
And I cease to fret and sigh,
And my eyes with joy grow brighter
When she makes a lemon pie.
