All News Daily Roundup. Album Reviews Song Reviews. Song Lyrics. Review: RIFF-it. Our guilty treasons call'd aloud For everlasting fetters too.
Hardness of heart complained of. How heavy here it lies, Heavy and cold within my breast Just like a rock of ice! This mountain presses down my faith, And chills my flaming love. The book of God's decrees. The presence of Christ is the life of my soul.
For I have sought no other home For I have learn'd no other rest. How mournfully the minutes roll! The world's three great temptations. A happy resurrection. Christ's commission, John 3. Repentance flowing from the patience of God. And do we yet rebel? Repentance at the cross. Repentance should like rivers flow From both my streaming eyes.
The everlasting absence of God intolerable. To linger in eternal pain, Yet death for ever fly! Access to the throne of grace by a Mediator. The darkness of providence. Triumph over death in hope of the resurrection. My joy it is that joy is past,. And gone my Lord's consoling smile.
My peace is hid in Jesus' breast,. May His sweet will alone be done! What fear can mar my perfect rest,. Who love the shadow as the sun? My peace, 'tis like a child to be,. That doth not plan, nor understand;. So, when I fall, Christ raiseth me,. And leads me gently by the hand. My childish love I manifest,. And for His grace alone implore;. Then, if He hide, my love to test,. I only love Him all the more. My peace, it is to hide my tears,. Nor ever show my bitter pain.
What joy to suffer through the years;. To veil with flowers each galling chain! To suffer, yet make no complaint,. Since this, my Jesus, pleases Thee! Could any trial make me faint? In prayers and tears, by day and night;. For many souls to intercede,. And say to Him, my heart's Delight:.
For Thee the cross I gladly bear. My only joy is suffering,. Since thus Thy earthly lot I share. I long would live an exile here,. If that be Thy dear will for me;. Or soon would flee from exile drear,. If thou shouldst call me unto Thee. Since Love's divine, celestial breath. Is all I need, my heart to bless,. What matters life, what matters death? Love is my peace, my happiness! January 21, O King majestic, strong! I well may call myself Thy work of grace alone;.
Thy love to pay with love, Thy care to tell with praise,. I come with joy today, before Thy altar throne. Jesu, my Best Beloved! For nothingness am I. What have I done for Thee? Yet, clad in virginal white, it is today my bliss. To follow Thee, the Lamb, in heavenly ecstasy.
I know, alas, too well, that I am less than naught,. Weakness itself, and poor; devoid of virtues great. And yet Thou knowest well that I have always sought. With longing heart, Thyself; on Thee alone I wait. When my young heart first felt the fire of love burn bright,.
Thou cam'st, O Christ! Naught could content my soul but Thee, my one De light;. The Infinite alone my burning thirst could slake. Like some wee lamb afar from its safe sheltering fold,. Gayly I played, and nothing knew of dangers drear. Shepherdess, Queen of Heaven!
Thy mother watchfulness, drew me thy heart anear. So, playing on the brink of pitfalls dread and deep,. Afar I saw the hill of Carmel beckon me;. And I divined that they who climb its summits steep,. Shall learn of love, to fly to heaven's eternity. An angel's purity, dear Lord, attracts Thy heart,.
An angel white as snow, in heaven's celestial mirth. Dost thou not also love a lily kept apart. For Thee, from mire and taint; as white as snow, on earth? If he, within Thy sight, exults all dazzling pure,.
In brilliant stainless robes, whose lustre blinds our gaze,. Hast Thou not kept my robe as safe, as white, as sure? My virgin heart has been the treasure of my days. Jesus, when Thou didst leave Thy Mother's fond embrace,. Let go her hand;. And first, on our hard earth, Thy little foot didst place,. And trembling stand;. Within Thy pathway, then fresh rose leaves would I spread,.
Their Maker's dower,. That so Thy tiny feet might very softly tread. Upon a flower. These scattered rose leaves form true image of a soul,. O Child most dear! That longs to immolate itself, complete and whole,. Each moment here. On Thy blest altars, Lord, fresh roses fain would shine,. Radiant, near Thee;. They gladly give themselves. Another dream is mine,. To fade for Thee! Fragrant and fair! But withered roses are forgot, the wild winds' own,.
Cast anywhere. Their scattered leaves seek now no earthly joy or pelf;. For self, no gain. Ah, little Jesus! Of self,. Let naught remain. These roses trampled lie beneath the passer's tread,. Unmarked, unknown. I comprehend their lot; these leaves, though pale and dead,. Are still Thine own. For Thee they die; as I my time, my life, my all. Have spent for Thee.
Men think a fading rose am I, whose leaves must fall. At death's decree. Joy beyond telling! Thus, fading, would I prove my love beyond compare,. All bliss excelling. Beneath Thy feet, Thy way to smooth, through life's long night,. He came to Lehi, and the Philistines shouted as they approached him. Then the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him. The ropes on his arms became like burned flax and the ties on his hands dissolved.
But the Ruach Yahweh came over him. When he reached Lehi, and the Philistines came shouting to meet him, the spirit of the Lord rushed upon him: the ropes around his arms became like flax that is consumed by fire, and his bonds melted away from his hands. When he came to Lehi, the Philistines shouted as they met him. And the Spirit of the Lord came upon him mightily so that the ropes that were on his arms were as flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds dropped from his hands.
When Samson came to the place named Lehi, the Philistines came to meet him, shouting for joy. The ropes on him weakened like burned strings and fell off his hands! When he arrived in Lehi, the Philistines shouted as they approached him.
The ropes around his arms were like flax dissolving in fire, and they melted away from his hands. Samson approached Lehi. The Philistines came toward him shouting. Then the Spirit of the Lord came powerfully on Samson. The ropes on his arms became like burned thread. They dropped off his hands.
As he approached Lehi, the Philistines came toward him shouting. The Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon him. The ropes on his arms became like charred flax, and the bindings dropped from his hands. As he approached Lehi, the Philistines came towards him shouting. When he came to Lehi, the Philistines came shouting against him. Then the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him; and the ropes that were on his arms became like flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds broke loose from his hands.And so I thought of a way for Nelson to be in the capital, under supervision so he wouldn't be running wild with women or his rebel uncles. I talked to Padre de Jesús López, our new priest, who promised to talk to Padre Fabré about letting Nelson enroll in Santo Tomás de Aquino in the capital.
