Goodnight 2007

This is the end of year 2007.  It’s been a very rough year. Today, the last day of the year, I realized everything He’s done… I’ve been so blind to His mercies and to His presence…yet still He’s been here patiently teaching  and loving me so tenderly. Tonight I’m more than confident of His everlasting love and grace. That grace which saved me and is still saving me…

Thank you, Jesus.

Year’s End

Thou art good when thou givest,
       when thou takest away,
       when the sun shines upon me,
       when night gathers over me.
Thou hast loved me before the foundation of the world,
       and in love didst redeem my soul;
Thou dost love me still,
       in spite of my hard heart, ingratitude, distrust.
Thy goodness has been with me another year,
       leading me through a twisting wilderness,
       in retreat helping me to advance,
       when beaten back making sure headway.
Thy goodness will be with me in the year ahead;
I hoist sail and draw up anchor,
With thee as the blessed pilot of my future as of my past.
I bless thee that thou hast veiled my eyes to the waters ahead.
If thou hast appointed storms of tribulation,
       thou wilt be with me in them;
If I have to pass through tempests of persecution and tempation,
       I shall not drown;
If I am to die,
       I shall see thy face the sooner;
If a painful end is to be my lot,
       grant me grace that my faith fail not;
If I am to be cast aside from the service I love,
       I can make no stipulation;
Only glorify thyself in me whether in comfort or trial,
       as a chosen vessel meet always for thy use.
