“THY WILL BE DONE”

A new day dawning and with it comes

Hope, new joy to rest upon.

Sure, rest for the people of God!

By faith this work is begun!

.

.

“Faith, the substance of things hoped for

The evidence of things not seen.”

By faith we know Jesus is near!

The arms on which we can lean!

.

.

Do not need a leaning post

Have everlasting arms!

Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost are

Keeping me from harm!

.

.

Delighting in His presence near!

Just what have I to fear?

At ninety-three I realize

End of this life is near!

.

.

Do I fear death?  Of course,

Like, the feeling so unknown.

Often I pray, “Lord, let it be night

When You and I are alone.”

.

.

You are never alone in combat

Though often I felt that way!

Leading patrol, the only scout,

Can do it himself!  What is to say?

.

.

Has a call to preach.

Cannot kill him!  Guess everybody knew!

That the Hand of God was on this boy

That God would see him through.

.

.

After I had planted that grenade

And foreseeing the result

Sure, it happened as I knew it would

I am not out to start a new cult!

.

.

Just to praise God’s abiding presence

Your faith too, if you believe

I am way past age when most folk expire!

Combative?  No, just peaceful me!

.

.

I am since soldiering for the cause of Christ!

Nothing evil l can harm!

This has distinctly positive proof!

In Christ, no cause for alarm!

.

.

Instinctive this knowledge within me!

God said, “No harm can come!”

So “Trust in the Lord with all your heart!”

In God’s hands, His will is done!

.

.

Sam trusts, you can, too!
