This Day is Sacred to our Lord.
Do not grieve,
FOR THE JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH.
REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS.
I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your Gentleness be evident to All.
THE LORD IS NEAR.
Do not be Anxious about any thing,
But in everything by Prayer and Petition,
Present your Requests to God.
And the Peace of God,
WHICH TRANSCENDS ALL UNDERSTANDING,
Will Guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Sing Joyfully to the Lord, your Righteous;
It is Fitting for the Upright to Praise Him.
Praise the Lord with the harp;
Make music to Him on the ten-stringed lyre.
Sing to him a New Song;
Play skillfully, and Shout for Joy.
Though the fig tree does not bud
And there are no grapes on the vines,
Though the olive crop fails
And the fields produce no food,
Though there are no sheep in the pen
And the cattle in the stalls,
YET I WILL REJOICE IN THE LORD,
I WILL BE JOYFUL IN GOD MY SAVIOR.
THE SOVEREIGN LORD IS MY STRENGTH;
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
He enables me to go on the Heights.
Sorrowful, yet always Rejoicing;
Poor yet making may Rich;
AND YET POSSESSING EVERYTHING.
(2 Corinthians 6:10)
