of mine, for each time one person believes
in You and receives Your salvation, the next
thousand generations continue on in You too!
When I think of how You left the ninety-nine
to look for a single lamb who was lost, I find
myself less worried about my kids. They’re
Your children too, Lord! Praise God! Praise
God, and thank goodness! The goodness
of our loving God goes on throughout eternity –
in your family and mine – in you, in them, in me.
