      Lord of History

      Wanda Lee Beck Skinner (c)

      March 10, 2011

      We face many enemies on every hand;

      Some are very near and dear to us.

      Some come from a far away land.

      We need to meet them with little fuss.

      The world today is so full of sin;

      The moral decay makes us want to cry;

      Our world it seems has gone awry;

      Many think nothing of telling a lie:

      Some have their own way no matter what;

      Many do not care if they cause others to sigh;

      God has many enemies and foes;

      Satan is the worst and has many friendsí

      If my anger is warranted God knows;

      His Spirit to help me He sends;

      Enemies I have my share to handle of course;

      Truthfully Iíve found I am often their source.

       

                          

      Praise God

      Wanda Lee Beck Skinner (c)

      Praise God in the morning light;

      Praise God for all His good;

      Praise God for the night;

      Praise God when life is filled;

      Praise God in sickness and health;

      Praise God your spirit canít be killed;

      Praise God you have Spiritual wealth:
