Hymntime :
My light and my salvation, O Lord, whom shall I fear?
You are my life’s great stronghold when evil men come near.
Though enemies attack me, my heart will never fear.
Though war break out against me, I’m confident you’re near.
One thing I ask and seek, Lord: to dwell with you always,
To gaze upon your beauty and seek you all my days.
For in the day of trouble, you’ll hide me, keep me safe.
My head will be exalted; I’ll sing and shout your praise.



Read Aloud Poem

To See Jesus

The crowd was large
And Zacchaeus was small
His little legs ran to find
A towering tree so tall.

Up would be the only way
To see Jesus on that day
Zacchaeus, climbed upon a tree
And there his eyes did finally see.

Jesus was already aware
of the quiet , joyful stare
and looked up toward Zacchaeus
eye to eye - a perfect prayer.

A welcomed guest would Jesus be
in the house He came to save
a sinner who needed to be free
And lifted from the hand of the grave.
