Your Light Shall Rise

Stop pointing fingers, telling lies. Show mercy and your light shall rise. 

Your gloom will fade and go away and God will guide you every day: 

oases open where you’re dry and strength unfailing resupply. 


What once was wrecked will be rebuilt, on strong foundations as God wills. 

Your work repairs the fractured breach and more, restores the potholed streets.  

Take time to rest each week, delight, with friends and neighbors left and right.


You’re called to live unselfishly. Be sure to do so honorably. 

The very thought of “property” can be the gateway into greed.

Remember those who shared with you and live in thanks to you-know-Who.
