Hymntime :


When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.



Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.



Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.




Read Aloud Poetry :



Not With A Telephone

Among this precious green earth
Filled with laughter and joy
The most important voice
Would clearly be heard
And not with a telephone
Would anyone need
In order to receive
The true living word.

The most important voice
Will be heard without choice
From the heavens or a dream
In a whisper, without scream
In a garden, or on the mount
Many times without count-
And not with a telephone.
You can hear Him
Within the silence
Privately and
On your own.

No signal fading or dropped call
Are given a chance to occur at all
This golden line cannot break
And when He calls you -
There is no mistake.

No matter where you are
In your shower or in your car
On a walk or a run
In the meadow
Under the sun
You can hear Him
And He can hear you
And not with a telephone
This line is open from the heart
Grounded firmly in love…
Right from the start.
