My Evening Thoughts

My Evening Thoughts Again the evening shadows come, and I must lie down to rest, But first I bow and count the many times that I was blessed; Oh yes, my faith was sorely tested, and my patience sorely tried, But through it all God humbled me, and crushed my foolish pride; My grateful heart looks upw...

A Meeting in The Woods

A Meeting in the Woods Strolling along a well-beaten trail, leading through the Autumn woods, I chanced to meet a young man, all alone; He was sitting on a narrow bench, staring into the distance, And I saw an empty bottle he had thrown; His gaze was fixed, he moved not at all, no smile could I dete...

Standing At The Crossroad

Standing At The Crossroad Now I was born a country boy Where the Summer breezes whisper through the pines Where the bluegrass grows and a river flows And we wakened to the Sunday Church bell’s chime We listened to the whip-poor-will, had apple pies on a window sill And we left a lot of footprints in...

To The Preacher

To The Preacher How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Word of God, Who sow good seed and meet each need while here on Earth they trod; Who many times must go forth weeping, yet sowing all the while, Who even though he's tired and weak, must go another mile; His love for Christ compels h...

When I See A Cross

When I See a Cross I have traveled so many roads in Life And so many things I have seen I cannot number the miles I have driven Nor the places that I have been And sometimes I yearned just to have a friend To help me carry my load And then I saw three Crosses Standing by the side of the road The “C”...

In The Fork Of The Road

In The Fork of The Road So often my heart goes drifting back to a beautiful sacred Place To a little Church in the fork of the road where I found God’s Saving Grace God only knows how many lost souls have laid down their heavy load At the Altar of that little Church that sits in the fork of the road...

My Time Has Come

My Time Has Come Seems I can hear a choir sing And the gentle sound of rustling wings There’s someone standing on the shore To guide my spirit safely o’er I hear my Father calling me My time has come to cross the Sea I’d like to say before I go That I have no fear, for I surely know That the One who...
