Psalms and Hymns

Psalm 84B “For God the Lord is shield and sun; The Lord will grace and glory give.  No good will He withhold from one who does uprightly walk and live.”

Alas! And Did My Savior Bleed  “Well might the sun in darkness hide and shut His glories in, when God, the mighty Maker, died for man the creature’s sin.”

In Thanksgiving Let Us Praise Him “From the first bright light of morning, to the last warm glow of dusk; every breath we take is sacred, for it is God’s gift to us.”
