So very sorry to hear of Mr. Gribble's passing. He and his wife have lived around the corner from me for many years. Will miss seeing him driving his truck around the neighborhood. Prayers and love sent to the family today.

 I worked with Donnie many years. He was a fine person, and was thought well of by all he knew. The heartfelt prayers of my family and me go out to the family, with the hope in the knowledge that heaven has him, and you'll see him later.

Lead, Kindly Light

Lyrics by John Henry Newman, 1833
Music by John B. Dykes, 1865


Lead, kindly Light, amid th’encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home;
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.

I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou
Shouldst lead me on;
I loved to choose and see my path; but now
Lead Thou me on!
I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears,
Pride ruled my will. Remember not past years!

So long Thy power hath blessed me, sure it will,
Will lead me on.
O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent, till
The night is gone,
And with the morn those angel faces smile,
Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile!

Meantime, along the narrow rugged path,
Thyself hast trod,
Lead, Savior, lead me home in childlike faith,
Home to my God.
To rest forever after earthly strife
In the calm light of everlasting life.
