Jesus' love is


Footprints in the Sand


The Lords Prayer

Jesus’ love is very wonderful
Jesus’ love is very wonderful,
Jesus’ love is very wonderful,
Oh, wonderful love!
            
It’s so high you can’t get over it,
So low you can’t get under it,
So wide you can’t get round it,
Oh, wonderful love!

So deep you can't go through it,
So long you can't see the end of it,
So strong you can't resist it,
Oh, wonderful love!

So bright you have to see it,
So loud you have to hear it,
So sweet you have to taste it,
Oh, wonderful love!

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.                             

Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.                   

In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.                       

Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there were one set of footprints.                                     

This bothered me because I noticed                                 that during the low periods of my life,                              when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat,                      

I could see only one set of footprints.             So I said to the Lord,      

"You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always.                    But I have noticed that during  the most trying periods of my life  there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.  

Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?"   

The Lord replied,  "The times when you have seen only one set of footprints,           is when I carried you."

Our Father, who art in heaven,
    hallowed be thy Name,
    thy kingdom come,
    thy will be done,
        on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our tresspasses,
    as we forgive those
        who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
    and the power, and the glory,
    for ever and ever. Amen.
