without expectations. scarborough.

'twas one of those relaxed conversations

when letters were painted art

without thinking came a first line,

without expectations

then from somewhere, came a-flowing

knowing 'twas from heavens heart.


'...He is not far from each one of us;
for in Him we live and move and have our being...'

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Acts 17~~~~~

'Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and comes down from the Father of lights,
with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.'

James 1:17

Far away in a land I once knew
Comfort, strength, love to encourage
I close my eyes ... and reach out where I'd meet you
For truly love ... is found everywhere


I'd not ask for impossible things ...
Comfort, strength, love to encourage
You've lavished in verse ... that's wondrously singing
Truly love... must be everywhere

Close to a shore ... when there he lent me
Comfort, strength, love to encourage
Bind stormy sea ~ hush breezes thou sent me
Truly love... is found everywhere

O .... see our homeland, come back again
Comfort, strength, love to encourage
Between dusk and dawn light unencumbered
Truly love... is seen everywhere

His Word is as sweet as the honey to life
Comfort, strength, love to encourage
Hemmed by a whisper ushered past midnight
Truly love ... is here everywhere
