Fear not I am with you;
Yield not, for I am God.
I strengthen you, I help you;
I up hold you with the right hand of my righteousness.
(ISAIAH 41:10)
Fear not,
For I have removed you;
I have called you by your name, you are mine.
(ISAIAH 41:1)

Lord my Shepard, source of all joys!
You are mine, I am yours;
Nothing can part us.

I am your, because you gave me your life
And your blood for my sake,
In your death

You are mine, because I hold and will
Never let you, O my Light, leave my heart.

Let me reach the peace where I shall
Embrace you and you will embrace me

Fear not, for you are mine.

  1. Lee & Graham Meyers :

    Without Rita, Robert, Horst and Joan, our travels through Alaska in 2000 would not have been so memorable and fun-filled. In 2005, Horst put aside his loss of Joan and showed three Australian softballers not only the beauty of Alberta, but heartfelt hospitality second to none. Later, he came Downunder in the hottest summer in years that tested his physical reserves, and still able to laugh and joke. We did not teach him to swim, though. No more Canadian phone calls on hot Christmas Eves; just very fond memories of a friend and fellow traveller. Yes, we will remember him.
