The Holy One

*This is another poem that rather just wrote itself as I have been sitting pensively by writing whatever happens to come into my heart.  God be praised and heaven be blessed!  Have a beautiful day, gentle reader!

Awaken all ye wayward nations!
Hear the glorious gospel call!
Rush unto the gentle Savior
And upon your knees now fall!

Mighty is His kind forgiving,
Gentle His unconquered name,
Join with gladness, ever praising,
And with joy unceased proclaim

“Ever Savior, our Redeemer
Great art Thou, our Heav’nly Friend!
Let us stay with Thee forever
Ne’er to part nor love to end!”

Now He rises to our poor eyes
Clothed in righteousness and light
Every heart is swelled and worships
With the joy and glory bright

That reflects from His great person
Overwhelming earth and sun.
Life eternal only lives in
Presence of the Holy One!

Abide With Me

*In a moment of prayer the hymn "Abide with Me" came to mind and as I sat to write out my thoughts this spilled out on the page.  Have a beautiful day and may the Lord abide with each one of us.

Abide with me, tis eventide
I have nowhere to go
But here into your arms alone
And make Thee my abode.

Abide with me, tis eventide
I wander, Lord, I faint.
And would Thou not now rescue me
And quiet my complaint?

Within your arms I dearly rest
And find in Thee my strength
Lord, stay with me til morning breaks
And make me Thine at length.
