Scripture for Sunday January 5th, 2020
Revelation 16:1-7


And I heard a great voice....

1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.

4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.

6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.



A New Year's Promise

Another year I enter;
Its history unknown;
Oh, how my feet would tremble
To tread its paths alone!


But I have heard a whisper,
I know I shall be blest;
My presence shall go with thee,
And I will give thee rest.


What will the New Year bring me?
I may not, must not know.
Will it be love and rapture,
Or loneliness and woe?


Hush! Hush! I hear His whisper,
I surely shall be blest;
My presence shall go with thee
And I will give thee rest.
