Another shocking and senseless tragedy...

Keep in your prayers the folks of Chardon, Ohio, and the students whose lives were captive to their worst fears in the shooting today...

How often we have sung these words to God of Grace and God of Glory only to think them merely a metaphor?  How easy it is for us to become accustomed to the things that should shock us?  There is no where else to go but into the arms of Jesus for consolation, comfort, and peace.  Lord, have mercy.  Lord, have mercy.

Cure Thy children’s warring madness,
Bend our pride to Thy control.
Shame our wanton selfish gladness,
Rich in things and poor in soul.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
Lest we miss Thy kingdom’s goal,
Lest we miss Thy kingdom’s goal.

Save us from weak resignation,
To the evils we deplore.
Let the search for Thy salvation,
Be our glory evermore.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
Serving Thee Whom we adore,
Serving Thee Whom we adore.
