God said you were getting weary So, He did what He thought best, He came and stood beside you
And whispered, “Come and rest.”
You bade no one a last farewell.
Not even a good-bye, You were gone before we knew it And only God knows why.

...How They Linger
I SHALL NOT BE MOVED
I shall not be moved -
Anchored in Christ Jesus,
I shall not be moved –
Just like the tree that's planted by the waters -
I shall not be moved-
In His love abiding, I shall not be moved -
And in Him confiding, I shall not be moved –
Amazing Grace! How sweet the
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see.
'Twas Grace that taught my heart to
And Grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.
Through many dangers, toils, and
I have already come.
'Tis Grace hath brought me safe
And Grace will lead me home.
THE LORD'S PRAYER – Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the
glory, for ever. Amen.
