The Oil of Joy

In Thee, O God, abides eternal gladness,The oil of joy for mourning, grief, and care;True beauty for the ashes of earth's sadness,The garment of Thy praise for dull despair.

For sorrow Thou hast rest and consolation,Regret finds solace and new hope appears;The desert places blossom: restorationReclaims the promise of the vanished years.

We'd love to hear from you!
