Second Sunday Meditation: Blessed Are They That Believe

"Blessed are they that have not seen, 
and yet have believed."
John 20:29

A Child's Prayer
 Donald Zolan


To the Chief Musician.
A Psalm.  A song.

God be merciful and gracious to us and bless us,
and cause His face to shine upon us
 and among us-

Selah pause, and calmly think of that!-

That Your way may be known upon earth,
 Your saving power, Your deliverances,
 and Your salvation among all nations.

Let the people praise You, 
turn away from their idols,
 and give thanks to You, O God:
 let all the peoples praise
 and give thanks to You.

O let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
 for You will judge the peoples
fairly and guide, lead,
 or drive the nations upon earth.

Selah pause, and calmly think of that!

Let the people praise You,
 turn away from their idols,
 and give thanks to You,
O God; let all the peoples praise
 and give thanks to You!

The earth has yielded its harvest
 in evidence of God's approval;
God, even our own God, will bless us.

God will bless us, 
and all the ends of the earth
 shall reverently fear Him.

George Washington's Prayer
Ken Corbett

Come to the fountain of mercy and live,
Come, and a pardon receive;
Drink of the water that Jesus will give,
Freely to those that believe;

Weary and burdened with sorrow,
Sweet is the message to thee,
Learn of the meek and the lowly
Come heavy laden to Me.

Come to the clear flowing river,
Drink of its waters forever,
Hungry and thirsty, O, never!
Blessed are they that believe!

Happy the nation whose God is the Lord;
Hearing in meekness and love
Counsels of wisdom and truth in His Word,
Looking for comfort above;

He is their Rock and Salvation,
He is their Strength and their Song,
Onward from glory to glory,
Leading them gently along.

Look unto Jesus, ye regions of earth,
Victor of death and the grave,
Though He was humble, and lowly His birth
He is the mighty to save.

Why should we wander in darkness?
Why to the world should we cling?
Hope, like a bird, is before us,
Pluming her beautiful wing.

God Bless America
John Lautermilc
