MOST DEAR TO ME
Vi B. Chevalier
Most dear to me are those I love,
Who share and bless my life,
Who fill my heart with countless joys
Despite days touched by strife.
Most dear are friends I cherish most,
Whose loyalty is true...
Whatever my lot, whatever my pain,
They're faithful, through and through.
Most dear each blessing that the Lord
Bestows with loving grace;
No matter if I sometimes err,
I'm safe in His embrace.
Most dear, indeed, the Voice within
That guides me night and day,
And gently chides my questing soul
Each time I chance to stray.
Most dear of all, my faithful Lord,
Who died to set us free,
That we - one day - might find true joy
With Him eternally.
