Gladly leave each anxious thought behind

“The Lord shall be unto thee en everlasting light.” ISA 60-19

Let love’s light shine upon each circumstance

Simply trust though you cannot see

You will find consolation when shadows fall

The art is to travel patiently.

Remember that harbouring dislike for someone

Can darken the path as you go,

The things which you turn your attention to

Are most likely to blossom and grow.

Gladly leave each anxious thought behind,

Giving thanks for the grace freely sent,

We fail to appreciate our daily blessings

When nothing stirs the heart’s content.

‘Tis only once we pass this way

Believe and stand on the written word

Assured that no defeat of the enemy

Can overcome the purpose of the Lord.

Doreen Craig.
