"ALL night, ALL day ANGELS are watching over the Freshwater Family"

" ...I must tell Jesus all of my troubles;
He is a kind, compassionate Friend;
If I but ask Him, He will deliver,
And in my griefs with me He will blend.
Tempted and tried I need a great Savior,
One who can help my burdens to bear;
I must tell Jesus, I must tell Jesus;
All my cares and sorrows will share..."
