PICS AND VERSES (Continued)

Don’t forget, KOG is inviting past and present members as well as friends to send in (click here) a picture of themselves as they cope with these anxious times, perhaps an action of shot of how you while away the hours. If you like you can include a favourite bible passage or Psalm to accompany the picture.

Our third installment of Pics and Verses is Carol and Pat Sarich with a picture taken on their recent Mexican holiday.

Instead of a bible verse Carol and Pat have recommended the hymn “The Day You Gave Us, Lord Has Ended.”

1 The day you gave us, Lord, is ended,
the darkness falls at your behest;
to you our morning hymns ascended,
your praise shall sanctify our rest.

2 We thank you that your church unsleeping,
while earth rolls onward into light,
through all the world her watch is keeping,
and rests not now by day or night.

3 As to each continent and island
the dawn leads on another day,
the voice of prayer is never silent,
nor dies the strain of praise away.

4 The sun that bids us rest is waking
your church beneath the western sky,
and hour by hour fresh lips are making
your wondrous doings heard on high.

5 So be it, Lord: your throne shall never,
like earth’s proud empires, pass away;
your kingdom stands, and grows for ever,
till all your creatures own your sway.
