Legacy

  Psalm 78:1-7 1 My people, hear my teaching;     listen to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth with a parable;     I will utter hidden things, things from of old— 3 things we have heard and known,     things our ancestors have told us. 4 We will not hide them from their descendants;     we will tell […]
