A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Monday 9/19

I used to be about to thanks, Lord,

    for the reward of this lovely fall day,

I used to be going to say

    it was a present I did not deserve

after which I remembered:

    I am not deserving of any of my blessings,

    I’ve completed nothing to benefit them,

    I am certianly not owed them

    – certainly, I am the one in debt to you…

Each good factor in my life, Lord,

is a blessing, a grace from you:

    unmerited, freely given,

    from you who owe me nothing

    however to whom I am in debt 

    as much as my ears…

 

Each good factor in m life, Lord:

    this lovely September day;

    each breath I take;

    my household, my mates

        and all who love and take care of me;

    my reminiscences, good and dangerous alike;

    my creativeness and my humorousness;

    each pleasure I’ve ever recognized and treasured;

    each unhappiness that has stretched my coronary heart;

    all my abilities, skills and pursuits,

        instinct, curiosity and sense of marvel;

    and every little thing I sense and know

        by imaginative and prescient, sight, listening to, style and contact;

    all this, O Lord, and extra, pure reward from you:

        undeserved, unmerited, unearned…

And in return, Lord, I’ve so little I would supply

    save my gratitude, my humble thank-you,

        my small, empty arms, raised up in prayer…

 

So, thanks, Lord, for this present day’s presents 

    and all that fills my coronary heart 

and in your Spirit opening broad my eyes 

    to see how actually blessed I’m…

Defend me, Lord, whereas I am awake

and watch over me as I sleep

that awake, I would maintain watch with you

and asleep, relaxation in your peace…

 

Amen.

 

 

Oh Lord, my GodOnce I, in superior marvelContemplate all of the worlds Thy arms have madeI see the celebrities, I hear the rolling thunderThy energy all through the universe displayed

 

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to TheeHow nice Thou artwork, how nice Thou artworkThen sings my soul, my Savior God to TheeHow nice Thou artwork, how nice Thou artwork

 

When by the woods 

And forest glades I wander

And listen to the birds sing sweetly within the timber

Once I look down from lofty mountain grandeur

And see the brook and really feel the mild breeze

 

It’s properly with my soul

It’s properly, it’s properly with my soul

When Christ shall come

With shout of acclamationAnd take me house, what pleasure shall fill my coronary heartThen I shall bow, in humble adorationAfter which proclaim, my God, how nice Thou artwork
