“Where could I go but to the Lord.” A message from Fr. Sam.

Good and blessed Morning,

I pray that God has blessed and kept you and your loved ones well.

Mr. Coats was sitting beside a dying neighbor, an old African-American man, Joe Keyes. Mr. Coats asked Mr. Keyes if he knew where he would spend eternity. The old gentleman said, “Where could I go but to the Lord?” Fast forward to years later, and Mr. Coats, while teaching at a singing school, Mr. Coats wrote the song. The question reminds us that whether we are riddled with problems, facing a beautiful day, or making our final journey home, there is no where else to turn except to the Lord.

Living below in this old sinful world Hardly a comfort can afford
Striving alone to face temptation so Now won’t you tell me

Where could I go but to the Lord Where could I go oh where could I go
Seeking the refuge for my soul Needing a friend to save me in the end
Won’t you tell me Where could I go but to the Lord
