MY GUIDING STARS

pigeon

 Written by Glory S. Davis

My guiding stars are points of lights

Set on my path to lead me right.

They are parts of the Master’s plan

To steer me through this earthly land.

 .

Sometimes my stars are not really friends.

Their only goal is to scheme my end.

But they are always surprise to see

That God’s plan is to favor of me.

 

And though they scheme all day long

God’s Will is oh so strong.

All their plots to hurt or harm me

Advance God’s plans to set me free.

 

Sometimes my stars are total strangers

Set in my way as personal road angels

To guide me away from the danger ahead

Saving me from pending doom and dread.

 

Yes, my Lord paved a path, you see

And set shinning stars to favor me.

As I journey this life day by day,

God guides me in His wondrous way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE CORNERSTONE OF THIS SHAKY BUILDING

THE CORNERSTONE OF THIS SHAKY BUILDING

THE CORNERSTONE OF THIS SHAKY BUILDING

The cornerstone of this shaky building

Is grounded and free from harm.

It stands not upon this earth

But rests in God’s loving arms.

 

He welcomed me long ago

When I was just a child,

And He has never left me . . .

Not even for a little while.

 

And though I stray away, at times

Out into the dangerous dark,

He like a shepherd comes for me

And carries me cradled near His heart.

 

Yes, I have witnessed many trials;

Seen Love ones go to other lands.

Old Age with his scythe has crippled me.

This old building sways . . .  but still stands.

 

I know if I stay in God’s hands,

Enfolded here all cozy and warm,

 The devil may try hard to win me,

But he can never really do me harm.

 

For the cornerstone of this old building

Keeps me standing all safe and calm.

It upholds me in good and bad times . . .

Anchored safely in God’s loving arms.
