For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon and stars of light,
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.

Holy Anguish

May I live each day with an urgency to share the gospel.
Father, I pray that I will show others Your love and Your grace.
May I deny myself and take up my cross and follow You everyday.
You have changed me and lifted me out of death.
I will share my story with others about how I was dead and bound in sin.
About how You lifted me up, and now I am fully alive.

I have no right to live my life in mediocrity.
Instead may I live each day with burning passion for my King of Kings.
May I see each person as one for whom Christ died.
Oh Father, please give me a holy anguish for those who so desperately need You.
