Marked For His Own

How lovely are the faces of
The men who walk with God.
Lit with an inner sureness of
The path their feet have trod;
How gentle is the manner of
A man who walks with Him!

No strength can overcome him, and
No cloud can courage dim.
Keen are the hands and feet- ah yes-
Of those who wait His will,
And clear as crystal mirrors, are
The hearts His love can fill.

Some lives are drear from doubt and fear
While others merely plod;
But lovely faces mark the men
Who walk and talk with God.

[Pauline Prosser-Thompson]

Ecclesiastes 8:1 ... Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man's wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed.

Daniel 9:17 ... Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord's sake.

Psalm 34:5 ... They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.❤
