In heavenly love abiding

In heavenly love abiding, no change my heart shall fear.
And safe in such confiding, for nothing changes here.
The storm may roar without me, my heart may low be laid,
But God is round about me, and can I be dismayed?

Wherever He may guide me, no want shall turn me back.
My Shepherd is beside me, and nothing can I lack.
His wisdom ever waking, His sight is never dim.
He knows the way He’s taking, and I will walk with Him.

Green pastures are before me, which yet I have not seen.
Bright skies will soon be over me, where darkest clouds have been.
My hope I cannot measure, my path to life is free.
My Savior has my treasure, and He will walk with me.

-Anna Waring

Hey there! You said to try to post so..... here it is! btw, I found a dress at the thrift store today to wear down to the museum! It'll need some altering but as it only cost a quarter I thought I'd give it a try.

Thanks! Did you go to Church? Too much snow for us... that is so neat about the dress. Jen will be thrilled.

I have been searching for a tune that has been haunting me for weeks,and that had the words, "Green pastures lie before me." I searched and searched for the melody that went with this text, but all in vain, util, going through google, I found the poem at the very beginning of your blog. It is an incredibl;e poem that led me to the haunting melody by Alexander Ewing. Many thanks.

You are very welcome! I actually haven't heard the tune, but I love old hymns and poetry and I am glad I could help you out.
