My faith is in my Jesus
My anchor is in Him.
When turmoil comes my way
His power is still within.
He keeps me through the bad times
And guides me through the good.
His love is always with me
On His promise I have stood.

My hope is in my Jesus
My life is in His hand.
The hope of life eternal
On His promise I will stand.
The hope of Joy in heaven
The hope of Glory above.
The hope that fills my soul today
Is because of His great love.

My love comes from my Jesus
And fills my heart today.
His love is overflowing
I have love to give away.
His love is still within me
His love is so divine.
I kneel before my savior
Grace and mercy’s always mine.

It’s by Faith, Hope and Love
I have come to Him today.
Can’t have one without the others
There is no other way.
My faith I keep in Jesus
My hope He will secure.
His love is always with me
With all three I will endure.

The greatest of these is Love.

    Thank you kindly My Irish Rose. (my grand daughter is mostly Irish, 15 months)

    I had not read it for some time until I posted it. I had forgotten (getting old) how it read and the feeling of the read. You express things so beautifully Mari, I am humbled. I read your comment to my wife and it blew her away. She was impressed. My hope in writing was to put the three words into easy to understand form, simple but meaningful. To touch someones heart mind and soul, is a great tribute to the power of words.

    It is evening in Ireland now. You made my day. Thank you.
