From Yonder Port...

From yonder port the birth of day is forging
An invitation to life’s creature care
It dims the dark of night with light of morning
Like legions of hope borne upon the air

Then rise for soon the noon will be upon us
And soon this breadth of day will ebb away
This life we live tallies into its oneness
The sum of how we spend our day to day

Lord, pray we seek but this with humble favor
To love Thee with full heart and soul and mind
And secondly that we may love our neighbor
Thus leaving a kind legacy behind

From yonder port the good Lord parts night’s curtain
Extending to our reach a day of grace
Uncertainty juxtaposed with Life’s Certain
That one day we will meet Him face to face

From yonder port the love of life's Creator
Does not fling forth mere happenstance to sod
But renders with the light of morning's splendor
Continuance of hope and grace of God

 For His lovingkindness is great toward us, And the truth of the LORD is everlasting. Praise the LORD! 

 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips will praise You.

Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Ps.95:1
