                       Verse of the Week

In shining majesty the mighty sun,

A king upon his chariot of gold,

Climbs higher till the heights of heaven are won

In glory streaming, blessed to behold.


And watching him, I feel a strange sense grow

That speaks of things that now I cannot see;

For only later will I truly know

How at his hour, God’s Spirit of the Sun is touching me.
