    His Amazing Grace


    Let warmth of day And still of night
    Help me through My darkest plight
    That I might one day Smile with thee
    And through my darkness, You might see
    An inner glow That sets me free
    When stress And strife Takes hold of me

    During troubled times Let peace be still
    His Amazing Grace My soul dost feel
    That from the darkness Enlightenment came
    And brought about A heartfelt change
    A better person I might be
    My Father shared His spirit with me​

    His amazing graze
    Has lover's eyes
    And in the face of love
    Darkness is never obliged
    His spirit is so amazing
    Saving my grace
    Cause when it got dark
    He shined light on my face
    I am an inner glow
    You are my smile
    This Asiatic flow
    Father, Mother and child

    So let the warmth of his sunlight
    Be your guiding light
    Because daytime always comes
    After the night
    And one of these days
    We'll awake
    And delight

    And be so bless'd
    we received this precious gift
    LIFE

    ase'

    sister cherryb

    always ready to acknowledge my origins...deeply rooted in HIS love for mankind. recognizing HIS command to LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THEY SELF in my everyday existence.

    Miss Lady...life is indeed a gift. one we should treasure...as the blessing it is...and not throw away...or take away...or waste away...or so many other ways we devalue our lives. MAY I SMILE WITH YOU?

    my river over floweth, today.:)

    THANK YOU, BOTH.

    There are times when we must be still
    so he may calm the stormy seas that arise
    when the darkness threatens to overcome thee...

    nicely done, Baller....
