Oh, the greatness of God and our nothingness
Oh, how we need to call out His name
For if we live without Him, how can we be blessed?
With faith in Him, We’re without shame
From this single commandment, then we’ll be
Of a mind that is automatically
Filled with great blessings immeasureably
And born of the spirit naturally
May we always rejoice, filled with His love
Submitting ourselves to humility
Seeking knowledge of what is above
So that on earth all the better we will be
Though we’re beggars, great blessings we will see
What’s in living an unexamined life?
For we’ve each foreordination
Perhaps to be found when we’ve conquered each strife
As we grow towards or our destination

A List of Promises
By Richard Eyre
11 And again I say unto you as I have said before,
that as ye have come to the knowledge of
the glory of God, or if ye have known of his
goodness and have tasted of his love, and have
received a remission of your sins,
which causeth such exceedingly great joy
in your souls, even so I would that ye should
remember, and always retain in remembrance,
the greatness of God, and your own nothingness,
and his goodness and long-suffering towards you,
unworthy creatures, and humble yourselves even
in the depths of humility, calling on the name
of the Lord daily, and standing steadfastly
in the faith of that which is to come,
which was spoken by the mouth of the angel.
12 And behold, I say unto you that if ye do this
ye shall always rejoice, and be filled with the
love of God, and always retain a remission of
your sins; and ye shall grow in the knowledge
of the glory of him that created you, or in the
knowledge of that which is just and true.
13 And ye will not have a mind to injure
one another, but to live peaceably, and to render
to every man according to that which is his due.
14 And ye will not suffer your children that
they go hungry, or naked; neither will ye suffer
that they transgress the laws of God, and fight
and quarrel one with another, and serve the devil,
who is the master of sin, or who is the devil spirit
which hath been spoken of by our fathers, he being an
enemy to all righteousness.
15 But ye will teach them to walk in the ways of
truth and soberness; ye will teach them to love one
another, and to serve one another.
