He Is Risen!
God's love is like an island in life's ocean vast and wide
---A peaceful, quiet shelter from the restless, rising tide.
God's love is like an anchor when angry billows roll
--- A mooring in the storm of life, a stonghold for the soul.
God's love is like a fortress, and we seek protection there.
When the waves of tribulation seem to drown us in despair.
God's love is like a habor where our souls can find sweet rest
from the struggle and the tension of life's fast and futile quest.
God's love is like a beacon burning bright with faith and prayer,
and through the changing scenes of life, we can find a haven there.
