"Happy They Who Trust In Jesus"
HAPPY they who trust in Jesus;
Sweet their portion is and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
God will keep His own secure:
Happy, though despised and poor.
Since His love and mercy found us,
We are precious in His sight;
Thousands now may fall around us,
Thousands more be put to flight,
But His presence
Keeps us safe by day and night.
Lo, our Saviour never slumbers,
Ever watchful is His care;
Though we cannot boast of numbers,
In His strength secure we are:
Sweet their portion,
Who our Saviour's kindness share.
As the bird beneath her feathers
Guards the objects of her care,
So the Lord His people gathers,
Spreads His wings, and hides them there:
All their foes they boldly dare.
~By Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)~
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help,
whose hope is in the LORD his God:
...Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven,
and whose sins are covered.
And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
How blessed we are to know the Savior! We, who have received the
Lord Jesus as our Savior, are secure in Him! The Lord saved us, keeps us
saved, intercedes on our behalf, loves us and will soon return for His own--
the Church-- His Bride-- those who have been redeemed by the Blood of the
Lamb! Do you know the Lord Jesus? Have you received Him as
your Lord and Savior? Are your sins forgiven?
