Book of Wisdom vv21 - 26 Read by William Glover

For great strength is always present with you; who can resist the might of your arm?

Indeed, before you the whole universe is like a grain from a balance, or a drop of morning dew come down upon the earth.

But you have mercy on all, because you can do all things; and you overlook sins for the sake of repentance.

For you love all things that are and loathe nothing that you have made; for you would not fashion what you hate.

How could a thing remain, unless you willed it; or be preserved, had it not been called forth by you?

But you spare all things, because they are yours, O Ruler and Lover of souls, for your imperishable spirit is in all things!

I was privileged to be asked to give this reading at the funeral of my Grandmother who passed away at the age of 94. May she rest in peace.
