Thoughts on God and Hugh

He’s got all time as well as this day To bring your life into conformity With His law in all its enormity. He made the world out of nothing And is quite able to handle our bucking. Onward and upward we ever go Always remembering, ever in the know: He’s got our lives in His […]
