“…because of the tender mercy of our God,

by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven

to shine on those living in darkness

and in the shadow of death,

to guide our feet into the path of peace.” (Luke 1:78-79)



Tender mercies are falling
Like soft kisses of dew,
Showers of grace are streaming
Through everything you do,

Oceans of love are flowing
From My heart to yours,
Sweet songs are springing from you
As your heart adores,

My joy is gleaming through you
As bright rays of light,
Happiness is beaming from you
Shining ev’n through night…

Yes, My child, I love you,
More than your heart can know,
Which is why these sweet gifts
To you forever flow.

So smile and dance,
Look up and radiantly rejoice,
Frolic through the wide green fields,
With music lift your voice,

And share with one and all
These gifts with you I share,
Tell to all you touch
Of My gifts beyond compare,

That they, too, may know
The heavenly light you see,
That they, too, may taste
The bliss of eternity,

That they may also smile
As My torrents of grace flow,
That they too may rejoice
In My love to know.

Feel My kiss now,
Upon your sweet forehead,
Feel so deep in your soul
The endless grace I shed,

Yes, feel My sunshine streaming
To you in all you do —
Amen, My precious child,
Bask in the love I have for you!
