Wait in cheerful hope, content

Central Park

Love this hymn. We have a portion of it framed in our home...

Obey, thou restless heart, be still
And wait in cheerful hope, content
To take whate'er His gracious will,
His all discerning love, hath sent;
Nor doubt our inmost wants are known
To Him who chose us for His own.

Sing, pray, and swerve not from His ways;
But do thine own part faithfully.
Trust His rich promises of grace,
So shall they be fulfilled in thee.
God never yet forsook in need
The soul that trusted Him indeed.

-Georg Neumark, 1600s


Sweet friend's birthday at the park on Saturday... Happy Birthday Becky!
