THE WOLF & THE CRANE

THE WOLF & THE CRANE – AESOP’S FABLES

Translated By George Flyer

A wolf who had a bone stuck in his throat hired a crane, for a large sum to put her head into his mouth & draw out the bone.

When the crane had extracted the bone & demanded the promised payment, the wolf, grinning & grinding his teeth, exclaimed: “why you have surely already had a suffecient recompense in having been permitted to draw our your head in safety from the mouth & jaws of a wolf.”

In serving the wicked, expect no reward, & be thankful if you escape injury for your pains.

LET YOUR ANOINTING FLOW

LET YOUR ANOINTING FLOW 

Let your anointing flow.

Let it saturate all of me.

Let your anointing flow, that I may in truth, serve thee.

Like oil in a vessel, pour in me Lord that I may be filled.

For I delight to please you Lord and to forever do your will.

Let your anointing flow greater in me than the days of old.

For your anointing is better than the fineness silver and yes,

even the purest gold.
