The LORD reigns!

The LORD reigns, He is clothed with majesty;
The LORD has clothed and girded Himself with strength;
Indeed, the world is firmly established, it will not be moved.
Your throne is established from of old;
You are from everlasting.
The floods have lifted up, O LORD,
The floods have lifted up their voice,
The floods lift up their pounding waves.
More than the sounds of many waters,
Than the mighty breakers of the sea,
The LORD on high is mighty.
Your testimonies are fully confirmed;
Holiness befits Your house,
O LORD, forevermore.

(Psalm 93)

The Ninety and Nine

There were ninety and nine that safely lay
In the shelter of the flock,
But one was out on the hills away,
Far off in the cold and dark;
Away on the mountains wild and bare...
Away from the tender Shepherd’s care.

“Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety and nine;
Are they not enough for Thee?“
But the Shepherd made answer: “This of Mine
Has wandered away from Me;
And although the road be rough and steep,
I go to the desert to find My sheep.”

But none of the ransomed ever knew
How deep were the waters crossed;
Nor how dark was the night which the Lord passed through
Ere He found His sheep that was lost.
Out in the bleak desert He heard its cry—
All bleeding and helpless, and ready to die.

“Lord, whence are those blood-drops all the way
That mark out the mountain’s track?“
“They were shed for one who had gone astray
Ere the Shepherd could bring him back.“
“Lord, whence are Thy hands so rent and torn?“
“They’re pierced tonight by many a thorn.”

And all through the mountains, thunder-riven,
And up from the rocky steep,
“Rejoice! I have found My sheep!“
And the angels echoed around the throne,
“Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His own!

Elizabeth Cecilia Clephane

Philippians 4:6-7

"Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your
requests to God.
And the peace of God
which transcends all understanding
will guard your hearts
and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Philippians 4:6-7
