"We Thank Thee, Lord"
WE thank Thee, Lord, for weary days
When desert springs were dry,
And first we knew what depth of need
Thy love could satisfy.
Days when beneath the desert sun,
Along the toilsome road,
O'er roughest ways we walked with One,
That One the Son of God.
We thank Thee for that rest in Thee
The weary only know,
That perfect wondrous sympathy
We only learn below.
The sweet companionship of One
Who once the desert trod:
The glorious fellowship with One
Upon the throne of God.
We know Thee as we could not know
Through heaven's golden years;
We there shall see Thy glorious face ---
Here understand Thy tears!
And here in peace, with Thee we go
Where Thou, our Shepherd, trod,
Still, learning through our need below
Depths of the heart of God.
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God,
and into the patient waiting for Christ.
It is in our weary days that we know His strength is sufficient! It is in our
trials that we know that the Lord can see us through. In Heaven, our weary
days will be over. We must learn much here while on this on earth. If we
never had problems, we would not know that the Lord could solve them.
If we never had a trial, how would we know the grace of God could see us through? How would we ever know the goodness of God if we never
experienced difficulty in this life and His mercy to see us through?
As we journey in this earthly life, the Christian finds that His goodness
is matchless and His love for us is without limit. He is always looking out
for us and cares for us. Shall we not forever sing praises unto Him who
redeemed us with His precious blood? To God be the glory great things
He hath done! He so loved this world that He gave His only begotten Son
to die upon the cruel cross for our sins. And our Lord Jesus is risen and
seated upon the right hand of the Throne of God. He is our Mediator and
Intercessor. Romans 8:34 says, "Who is he that condemneth? It is
Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the
right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us."
Through our tribulations and trials, we know Him as we could have never
known Him if we were already in Heaven. For He is faithful and true and
has proven to be true every time and throughout every storm.
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the
feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we
are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne
of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in
time of need.
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is
tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath
promised to them that love him.
