Life Relay

At inception the young mouth

 clung to the nipples

With time hands aided and

 waited  to be given 

Acceptable to lay tender head

 on solid thighs
Later growth came and the

 tree stood waiting to be worked on

 till the fruits come down

 now for the no longer solid 

but wrinkled thighs

That’s what it’s meant to be

The grown with hope set out

 to conquer and make a banquet
To the tree 

Then the wind struck 

almost like whips of cane

The rain a thousand pebbles pour down

The sun blazing red like hot coals

Jagged mountains arise 
The grown trudge on 

To feed self and the beloved old

A Comforting hymn: Jesus is all the world to me

Music is a part of life and does miracles to the soul. This beautiful hymn does a lot of wonderful things to me just as the lyrics speaks. It could be said to be among my best. I hope it comforts you too.

A hymn by Will Thompson in

SDAH 185 – Jesus Is All the World to Me

Jesus is all the world to me,

My life, my joy, my all;

He is my strength from day to day,

Without him I would fall.

When I am sad, to Him I go,

No other one can cheer me so;

When I am sad, He makes me glad,

He’s my friend.

2

Jesus is all the world to me,

My friend in trials sore;

I go to Him for blessings, and

He gives them o’er and o’er.

He sends the sunshine and the rain,

He sends the harvest’s golden grain;

Sunshine and rain, harvest of grain,

He’s my friend.

3

Jesus is all the world to me,

And true to Him I’ll be;

O how could I this friend deny,

When he’s so true to me?

Following Him I know I’m right,

He watches o’er me day and night;

Following him by day and night,

He’s my friend.

4

Jesus is all the world to me,

I want no better friend;

I trust Him now, I’ll trust Him when

Life’s fleeting days shall end.

Beautiful life with such a friend,

Beautiful life that has no end;

Eternal life, eternal joy,

He’s my friend.
