Blessed Be the Name

“Man was made for joy and woe,

And when this we rightly know

Through the world we safely go.” (William Blake)

“Some folks trust to reason

Others trust to might

I don’t trust to nothing

But I know it come out right” (Robert Hunter)

Then the LORD answered…out of the storm

“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
Tell me, if you understand.

Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
Who stretched a measuring line across it?

On what were its footings set,
or who laid its cornerstone-

while the morning stars sang together
and all the angels shouted for joy?” (Job 38)

“Second star to the right and straight on till morning.” (Peter Pan)

Friends and Colleagues:

We don’t have to know which way the road will turn,

To have hope in the final destination.

We don’t have to understand all of creation

To trust the loving heart of our Creator.

We don’t have to control every set of circumstances

To sense that truth and love win out

We don’t have to be first in line

To have everything our LORD has in store

Blessed be the Name of the LORD
