Peaceful Progress

Tune & Hymn: 'O perfect love, all human thought transcending'


Still now my soul, and hear what your Lord may say

To you in many matters if the day

Human thoughts hush, amid the noise and clamour

The Lord in His still small voice shall speak sure


What may or may not be, in the multitude

Of things that trouble, let mind be renewed

Christ-like in mind, so lead to Christ-like action

Growing more, ever, into Christ, God's Son


What the Lord's plans and will and purpose be

Shall surely come to pass, and all shall see

As we pray, His kingdom come, and His will be done

On earth as in heaven unto each one

        Teef cooling down at all? The extreme heat must be terrible for you. And India is unimaginable heat just now.

            Thanks Gold. As I say, KP and I never had this for our wedding. I remember one hymn we had was 'Fight the good fight'. lol.
