By Bess S. Ayers
When sailing through the storms of doubt, discouragement, or pain,
I shall not fear the lashing wind, nor fury of the rain.
Three anchors hold my little craft; I tested them with care;
There’s one of faith, one of hope, and one of daily prayer.
With these to hold my ship secure; what danger can betide?
I know that I shall reach at last; a harbor safe and wide.
Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
