Amy Carmichael:

Amy Carmichael When she became an invalid she wrote: Before the winds that blow do cease, Teach me to dwell within thy calm; Before the pain has passed in peace, Give me, my God, to sing a psalm.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8; 13 NIV …But the greatest of these is love. 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails… 13 and now these three remain: faith, hope and love.


LOU FELLINGHAM Build This House All I have and all I am is Yours; there's nothing that I have on earth that doesn't come from You. I lay aside my pride and worldly worth; To serve You is the greatest thing that I could ever do. For unless You build this house, I am building it in vain. Unless the work is Yours, there is nothing to be gained. I want something that will stand when Your holy fire comes; something that will last, and to hear You say 'well done', giving glory to You, Lord, glory to You, Lord. 2. So easy to desire what others have, Instead of seeing all the gifts that You have given me. So help me fan the flame which You began, And burn in me a love for You that all will clearly see.
