1. He Is My Refuge - (C)  We live in ever more challenging times. Natural disasters, economic worries, violence and wars are just a few of the difficult situations we encounter in our time. But as we face the unique problems of the 21st centuary, we can draw powerfully on the same Resource that sustained, guided, protected, and comforted other generations of faithful souls in their time.   (Psalms 46:1-3, 10-11)

2. I Can Turn to You - (C)  No matter where we are, no matter what we're going through, there is One who is always available to us. We can rely with serene assurance on His kindness, wisdom, and unfaltering goodness. He never tires of hearing from us. Even when the friendship and support of others falter, He will not fail us - if we turn to Him.  (Matthew 7:7-8)

3. How Gentle God's Commands**- (C)  This beloved traditional hymn was penned in the 1700's by Philip Doddridge (text) and Hans G. Nageli (music). This is a timeless invitation, as appropriate now as when it was first written centuries ago: "Come, cast your burdens on the Lord \ And  trust His constant care."  (Psalms 55:22)

4. Under Construction - (C)  None of come into this world fully developed, fully mature. We are built gradually, over the process of time. We are perfected piece by piece, not all at once. And the same is true for our spouses, our children, our co-workers, and everyone else we will ever meet. We can be kind and patient, with ourselves and with others, when we remember - we're all "under construction." (Mark 6:2-3)

5. Fear Not, Little Children - (L)  The Lord frequently refers to His followers by such endearing terms as "little children." The gentle care implied by such terms is reflective of the tender relationship He has with us. He nourishes us, provides for us, comforts us, directs us, and shapes us, a little at a time, as we grow gradually in His image.  (D&C 50:40-43, 78:17-18)

6. He Is Still the Prince of Peace - (C)  Christ is known by different names - each reflects of a different dimension of His divine mission as Savior, Redeemer, Creator, Lamb of God, and so forth. But perhaps one of his most meaningful names is "the Prince of peace." Someday  He will come, to bring peace from the entire world. Till then, he brings peace more quietly, more personally - one soul at a time.  (Isaiah 9:6)

7. We Talk of Christ - (L)  Inspired by a talk given by President Gordon B. Hinckley in April 2000, this song celebrates the joy experienced by those who "talk of Christ" and "rejoice in Christ."  He is our light, our friend, our Exemplar.  He is our Savior, our rescuer, our redeemer. He lifts our eyes, brings light to our understanding, and extends the deepest kind of healing and hope.  (2 Nephi 25:26)

8. Bring It Unto Him - (C)  We live in a world of so many experts, products, and programs that it often seems that there is an earthly solution for every challenge in life. But as we explore these mortal resources, we often find that they carry limitations, side effects, and complications that may be worse than the problem we started with. Meanwhile, we might be neglecting the most powerful and comprehensive Resource of all. "Whatever it is... Bring it unto Him."  (Hebrews 4:15-16,  D&C 19:23)

9. Acquainted - (C)  As we come to understand our relationship with the Almighty, one of the most striking things is how utterly personal that relationship can be - how completely He understands our feelings, our griefs, our struggles - how intimately He can reach into our souls and send customized assistance to meet our needs.   He is not a distant, unfeeling intelligence. For each of us, individually - "He is acquainted with your grief;  He is acquainted... with you."   (Isaiah 53:3; Alma 7:11-12)

10. Make of Me a Temple - (L)  During his short but memorable presidency over the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, President Howard W. Hunter encouraged the faithful to make the temple a great symbol of their devotion. Now, increasing numbers of temples dot the world's landscape. Like the temples themselves, we can become sanctified, filled with light, and fully dedicated to the great work of the Lord.  (Howard W. Hunter, October 1994)

11. Peace I Leave With You - (C)  As the Savior passed the final few hours of His mortal life with His dearest and most trusted friends, He gave them counsel that still resonates powerfully these many centuries later: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you... In the world ye shall have tribulation- but be of good cheer;  I have overcome the world." Within a few hours of speaking these words, He suffered greater agony than any soul before or since. Yet he had promised " my peace I give unto you." He who is no stranger to pain and sorrow knows how to lift the troubled heart- even in the midst of the storm. He is the ultimate refuge - the great Carpenter - the master healer - The Prince of Peace.  "Peace I leave with you."  (John 14:27; 16:33)
