The Light - The Way

I felt the world had turned me down and life had left me low;
Though I looked on every side, my eyes could find but woe.
My friends were gone, and all alone I argued with despair;
Until I grew so weak and worn and life was filled with care.

All hope was gone, and as I walked in darkness and defeat,
I cried, "I quit! There's no way out!" and death I did intreat.
But in the middle of my darkness a gentle voice did say:
"Come unto me - no need to fear, I am The Light - The Way.

Though trouble walks on every side, I shall dwell within
To strengthen and protect you and keep your heart from sin."
The choice was mine, to live or die, to lose or ever win;
Without a word, I fell at His feet, such peace there came within.

Somehow I knew that I could be whatever He should bid,
And on my feet I stood and said, "I shall not die, but live!"
Now when I'm tested, tossed and tried, I still can hear Him say,
"Come unto me - no need to fear, I am The Light - The Way."

Peace at Last

God of Mercy, God of Might, help me live my life alright.
Give me light and guide my way, to Home at last on Judgement Day.

Then safe within Your Kingdom blest, I'll ever have eternal rest.
No trouble then my days shall see, but everlasting peace with Thee.

Rev. Thomas Foy


Faith is in the eye that sees God, no matter how dark the day.
Faith is the hand that holds Him, on the steep and rugged way.

Faith is the heart rejoicing - accepting God's promise true.
Faith is the ear that listens, to the voice that speaks to you.

Faith refuses to doubt Him, though others are filled with fear.
Faith is believing the Word, and knowing God is near.



They said "you'll never make it", and they thought that they were right,
But I kept on plodding onward, because I hoped I might.
And they shook their heads in wonder, that I lacked the sense to quit,
But I held my chin up higher, and I didn't mind a bit.

They said "you'll never make it", as the problem multiplied,
But I had to make an effort, and to know at least I tried.
So I dug my heels in deeper, though sometimes my spirits lagged,
And I shouldered what was the lightest, and the rest I sort of dragged.

And I found to my amazement, at the ending of the day,
That what they said I couldn't, I had managed anyway.
It only took three little words, "Lord help me", and I rid
Myself of doubt, and all they said I'd never do... I did.

Where God Ain't!

He was just a little lad, and on the week's first day.
He was wandering home from Sunday School, and dawdling on the way.

He scuffed his shoes into the grass; he found a caterpillar;
He found a fluffy milkweed pod, and blew out all the "filler".

A bird's nest in a tree o'er head so wisely placed on high,
Was just another wonder that caught his eager eye.

A neighbor watched his zigzag course, and hailed him from the lawn;
Asked him where he'd been that day, and what was going on.

"I've been to Bible school." he said, and turned a piece of sod.
He picked up a wiggly worm and said, "I've learned a lot of God."

"M'm a very fine way," the neighbor said, "for a boy to spend his time."
"If you'll tell me where God is, I'll give you a brand new dime."

Quick as a flash his answer came! Nor were his accents faint.
"I'll give you a dollar, Mister, if you can tell me where God ain't!"
