Until …

by kenval

Until I learned to trust, I never learned to pray; I never learned to fully trust ‘Till sorrows came my way. Until I felt my weakness, His strength I never knew – Nor dreamed ’till I was stricken That He would see me through. Who deepest drinks of sorrow, Drinks deepest, too, of grace; He […]

Give Me, O Lord, a Heart of Grace

by kenval

Give me, O Lord, a heart of grace, A voice of joy, a shining face, That I may show, where’re I turn, Thy love within my soul doth burn. Though life be sweet and joy be dear, Be in my mind a quiet fear, A patient strength in pain and care, An enmity to dark […]

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater, He sendeth more strength when the labours increase; To added afflictions He addeth His mercy, To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace. When we have exhausted our store of endurance, When our strength has failed ere the day is half done, Our Father’s full fiving is only […]
