Singing of My Savior's Love!

My Song Is Love Unknown
by Samuel Crossman

My song is love unknown, my Savior's love to me,
Love to the loveless shown that they might lovely be.
Oh, who am I, That for my sake
My Lord should take frail flesh and die?

Sometimes they strew His way and His sweet praises sing;
Resounding all the day hosannas to their King.
Then "Crucify" is all their breath,
And for His death they thirst and cry.

Why, what has my Lord done to cause this rage and spite?
He made the lame to run, and gave the blind their sight.
So cruelly dies, so cruelly dies, my Savior dies,
My song of love so cruelly dies.

Here might I stay and sing of Him my soul adores,
Never was love, dear King, never was grief like yours!
This is my friend in whose sweet praise
I all my days could gladly spend.

When We Shall Be Forever With the Lord

Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side.
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change, He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul: when dearest friends depart,
And all is darkened in the vale of tears,
Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
Who comes to soothe thy sorrow and thy fears.
Be still, my soul: thy Jesus can repay
From His own fullness all He takes away.

Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening on
When we shall be forever with the Lord.
When disappointment, grief and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, love’s purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.

Please keep my family in your prayers as we go through a very difficult time. It gives me joy to know that we shall be with our Lord someday! It will be a sweet and happy reunion with those who have gone before us.
