Speaking of deaths, just last week, I got the report that Larry LaPrise, from Scotland, died. He wrote “The Hokey Pokey” (and turn yourself around…). He died peacefully at the great age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in…and then the trouble started! That’s what it is all about!
1 O LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me!
2 Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.”
3 But You are a shield around me, O LORD; You bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
4 To the LORD I cry aloud, and He answers me from His holy hill.
5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
6 I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.
8 From the LORD comes deliverance. May Your blessing be on Your people.
3 When I am afraid, I will trust in You.
4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?10 In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise—
11 in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?12 I am under vows to You, O God; I will present my thank offerings to You.
13 For You have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.
· I hear the Savior say, “Your strength indeed is small; Child of weakness, watch and pray, Find in Me your all in all.”Refrain:
Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.イエスは全てを贖われた、主に全ては帰す罪が朱色に汚れていても、主はそれを雪のように白くされる· For nothing good have I whereby Your grace to claim; I’ll wash my garments white in the Blood of Calvary’s Lamb.· And now complete in Him, My robe, His righteousness, Close sheltered underneath His side, I am divinely blessed.
第１ヨハネ １：8-9 自分に罪がないと言うなら、自らを欺いており、真理はわたしたちの内にありません。 自分の罪を公に言い表すなら、神は真実で正しい方ですから、罪を赦し、あらゆる不義からわたしたちを清めてくださいます。1 John 1:8-9 8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
