This old pen,
has penned many words,
words to encourage,
words to cheer,
words to sing,
words that are dear.
This old pen,
has penned about trees,
about the clouds,
and the sounds,
of the birds and bees.
This old pen,
has penned about God,
about Jesus His Son,
about His gift of salvation,
I pray it for everyone.
Yes, this old pen,
has penned many words,
some over and over again,
like, red, white, and blue,
and, I love, I forget,
and I forgive you.

*He spoke in, and by, the prophets—2Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

*He strives with sinners—Genesis 6:And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

*He reproves— John 16:And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

*He comforts— Acts 9:31 Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.

*He helps our infirmities— Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
