You cannot live another’s life,

Strive ever so hard, live ever so long;

You can never feel their pain, or sing their song.

You have your own terrific life to live,

Your own personal niche to fulfill;

Give it, Friend, all your ability.

Give your great life all your forceful, free will.

He, who gave you your life, loves you still!  – eab, 1/3/07


Written while pastoring a church in Kingston, Ontario, Canada – an interesting and educational experience and (I hope for one or more) a soul inspiring time as well.

“I Heard Them Saying That God Was Dead”


I heard them saying that God was dead

            But the sun still rose at dawn.

And the stars still twinkled o’er my head

            When the last sunlight was gone.


The moon serene smiled sweetly on

            The storm clouds reared on high

The lightnings flashed; the thunders rolled

            In power across the sky.


The trees still bowed to the passing wind

            And the earth drank in the rain.

And deep in my heart the Spirit sang

            A glad and sweet refrain.


“All things are upheld by My mighty power

            I govern from shore to shore.

I hold thee in life from hour to hour

            And I live forevermore.”


John F Dorsey was born today 1/3/1916 in Ohio.  His life has been a blessing through sermons (evangelist, pastor, Bible teacher) and through his pen, both in poetry and in prose.  See A Farmer Looks at the Parables
