This Week’s Memory Verse: P is for…
“Praise him, sun and moon, praise Him all you shining stars!” -Psalm 148:3
(Last year, we memorized this whole chapter as a family and included portions in Hawaiian. This particular verse reads “E halelelu aku ia ia, e ka la, a me ka mahina, E halelu aku ia ia, e na hoku malamalama a pau.”)
Hymn of the Week: “Beneath the Cross of Jesus” (Clephane/Maker)
Beneath the cross of Jesus I fain would take my stand
The shadow of a mighty Rock within a weary land;
A home within the wilderness, a rest upon the way,
From the burning of the noon-tide heat, and the burden of the day.
Upon that cross of Jesus mine eye at times can see
The very dying form of One who suffered there for me;
And from my smitten heart with tears two wonders I confess-
The wonders of redeeming love and my unworthiness.
I take, O cross, thy shadow for my abiding place;
I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of His face;
Content to let the world go by, to know no gain nor loss,
My sinful self my only shame, my glory all the cross.
(E halelu aku oukou ia Lehova!)
