When wintry winds and stormy seas
Make all the world seem bleak,
When hope is difficult to find
And peace is hard to seek,
Through troubled times and dreary days,
In glorious and simple ways,
My eyes are somehow turned to Thee;
And once more, all is well with me.

 For this, my heart will ever raise
A song of love, a song of praise.

“Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer and worn with thanks. – Thomas Goodwin

“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.”
– Mother Teresa
