With All Diligence

Help me to walk
In the light of Your countenance
While I reside here,
And to know the joyful sound.
Help me to keep my heart
With all diligence…
Steady, careful, persistent,
Earnestly making an effort to accomplish
Your Holy work in me.
Thank You for time with me today.
Thank You for helping me
To be diligent.

Shielded By The Savior

Lives pour throughout the century,
A plea to survive the struggle.
Tragedies overwhelm the soul.
Evil attempts to smuggle.
There is no open road for sin
To take control of the Lord’s.
The temporary false hope
Convinces evil to try a little more.
Consistent, persistent,
Never willing to waiver,
Evil loses to the very enemy
Shielded by the Savior.
Praise You, Lord, for Your faithfulness.
