Phriday Photos

I’m about to head off to my church’s English Ministry – Winter Retreat, so I haven’t had time to publish my thoughts on Urbana yet… but here’s a photo from the Old Cathedral in St. Louis.

Length of days does not profit meexcept the days are passed in thy presence, in thy service to thy glory.Give me a grace that precedes, follows, guides, sustains,sanctifies, aids every hour,that I may not be one moment apart from thee,but may rely on thy Spiritto supply every thought,speak every word,direct every step,prosper every work,build up every mote of faith,and give me a desireto show forth thy praise,testify thy love,advance thy kingdom.I launch my bark on the unknown waters of this year,with thee, O Father, as my harbor,(with) thee, O Son, at my helm,(with) thee, O Holy Spirit, filling my sails.Guide me to heaven with my loins girt,my lamp burning,my ear open to thy calls,my heart full of love, my soul free.Give me thy grace to sanctify me,they comforts to cheer me,thy wisdom to teach,they right hand to guide,thy counsel to instruct,thy law to judge,thy presence to stabilize.May thy fear by my awe,thy triumphs my joy.(Valley of Vision, p. 112)(HT: Justin Taylor)
