There are loud sounds, there are long sounds; loudness and longness do not equal harmony

When a person seeks to be noticed, he looses his perfect accord and either goes flat (less than God’s vibrations) or becomes sharp (more than God’s vibrations). 

He stands out alright, he is different, not pleasing to God or to God’s people – only pleasing to himself.

Now is our pleasure, in parts divided;

Three ways delighted,

Triplet in nature.

Present, past, future, in thoughts united,

Separately sighted,

In realm of measure.

But in the Land of Bliss, where time is no more,

Pleasure is endless, no after, before.

An eternal kiss on that wondrous shore.

– eab Dec. ’66

Bowed beneath your burden, is there none to share? Weary with the journey, is there none to care?

Courage, wayworn traveler, heed your Lord’s commands, There’s a thought to cheer you, Jesus understands.


Yes, He understands, all His ways are best. Hear, He calls to you, Come to Me and rest.

Leave the unknown future in the Master’s hand, Whether sad or joyful, Jesus understands.
