The simplicity which is in Christ is rarely found among us.
In its stead are programs, methods, organizations, and a world of nervous activities which occupy time and attention but can never satisfy the longing of the heart.
(A.W. Tozer in The Pursuit of God, found in Flowers Along The Path by Esther Carls Dodgen, p. 198)

We Gather Together To Ask The Lord's Blessing

We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing;
he chastens and hastens his will to make known;
the wicked oppressing now cease from distressing.
Sing praises to his name; he forgets not his own.
(Dutch Hymn)

Trust in the Lord

Trust in the Lord with all you heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Lead Me to the Rock

From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Our Father's World

This is our Father's world:
O let us not forget
that though the wrong is often strong,
God is the ruler yet.
He trusts us with his world,
to keep it clean and fair --
all earth and trees, all skies and seas,
all creatures ev'rywhere.

Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow, and every day ... Be at peace, then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.
