Postlude “The Navy Hymn”
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
Shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
For thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff
They comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me
In the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
“As the Bird Free of it’s cage
seeks the heights,
so the Christian soul in death
flies home to God.”
For all who have loved, love is grand…
Wonderful times, hand-in-hand…
The shows, the theater, the parties galore…
And times alone, to love and adore.
When the outer world is lost and forgotten,
And love’s world swells as puffy cotton,
An ecstasy is known to all…
Above and beyond, preserved from fall.
Oh, let there be love… oh shall it be
For now, forever, and eternity.
