GRACE IS A LANTERN
Ella Mae Carbugh
Grace is a lantern, swinging in the night,
Truth and mercy are its rays of light.
Rghteousness goes before me,
Judgment keeps me way,
Loving-kindness holds my hand,
And Goodness is my stay.
Faith is the path, so sure and strait,
Praise is the motion that sets the gait.
The voice of my Shepherd
Speaks clear and strong:
"Follow close behind Me, for the Way is long,
The pathway is rough and rugged and steep,
You must not dawdle, you've no time to sleep.
I'll lead by still waters and pastures of green,
No harm shall befall you, on Me you must lean,
Only listen, obey and heed all you've heard.
I am all you have need of, for I am the Word!"
