.rock of ages (when the day seems long).

Rock of Ages, when the day seems long
from this labor and this heartache, i have come
the skies will wear out, but You remain the same
Rock of Ages, i praise Your name

Rock of Ages, when in want or rest
my desperate need for such a Savior i confess
pull these idols out from my heart embrace
Rock of Ages, i need Your grace

 Rock of Ages, "It is done!" You cried
the curtain's torn and i see justice satisfied
now write Your mercy, on my heart and hands
Rock of Ages, in faith i stand

Rock of Ages, my great hope secure
Your promise holds just like an anchor to my soul
bind Your children with cords of love and grace
Rock of Ages, we give You praise.

-Rock of Ages (When the Day Seems Long),
Indelible Grace: By Thy Mercy
On repeat today.

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
