The Threefold Cord

A Threefold Cord


        Hearing the voice of my Gracious Father
        Leaving self-pity, my spirit grows calmer
        Following closely, awaiting His answer
        Letting Him author the days and the hours


        Looking forward with glad anticipation
        Pressing toward Christ, my footsteps hasten
        Seeing the future--Heaven's happy occasion
        Holding confidence in Him--a sure persuasion


        Reaching out to share God's awesome care
        Showing others joy--not deep, dark despair
        Overcoming selfishness--my constant prayer
        Giving graciously to everyone, everywhere

And now abideth faith, hope, and charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
I Cor. 13:13
