"John The Seer"

What of the life of John the Seer,
How he served God those many years.
From crucifixion to Patmos shore,
He served his God for evermore.
Personally knowing this Jesus Christ,
Knowing that He from the tomb did rise.
Loving Christ in the way he knew how,
Suffering with Him on Golgotha's brow.

Knowing both Peter and Paul in the work,
Helping the Christians, no duty did shirk.
Loving all people, John the Beloved,
True to his calling from Heaven above.
Exiled to Patmos, the reason is clear,
God had a story for Christians to hear.
Through John the Revealer, praise God for this man,
We know more about Death and Eternity's Plan.

E.H. Coe 1979
"Paul"

Paul of Tarsus, what a man,
And how he fit into God's plan.
Striving always to succeed,
Doing great and noble deeds.
Serving God with love and pride,
Ever working at His side.
Doing great things for the Lord,
Although threatened by the sword.
Expecting great things from above,
Serving God with Faith and Love.
Witnessing to great and small,
From soldier's tent to Caesar's hall.
From Blindness on Damascus Road,
Touched by God to bear the load.
To spread the Gospel for man to see,
That loving God, would set him free.

E.H. Coe 1978
Midi " Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus"

O soul are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There's light for a look at the Saviour,
And life more abundant and free.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His Glory and Grace.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion-
For more than conquerors we are!

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His Glory and Grace.

His Word shall not fail you-He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well;
Then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell.
