I wish thee now, ‘midst all the world’s dark sorrow,
The quiet sense of being truly blest;
We cannot tell what waits us on the morrow,
But we can have in Him deep quiet rest.
His hand, unseen, still ruleth o’er the nations;
His will is sovereign, even as His power;
Today, o’er earth, deep groans and lamentations,
But He is ruling, e’en in this dark hour.
Not sin, nor wrong, nor base unholy passion
Shall win the day, since He is on the throne;
Not so shall He His holy purpose fashion,
Though oft it seem that evil reigns alone.
In Him we rest; our fortress, strong, abiding;
In Him is peace, and freedom from alarm;
And quiet strength, and inward deep confiding.
For He can keep from every kind of harm.
~ By J. Danson Smith ~
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that,
if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
What a blessing it is to have the Lord Jesus as our Savior!
To know that He is our help in times of trouble. To know
that there is a resting place in Christ Jesus. In the midst
of every trial, He is here to comfort our hearts. His grace
is sufficient and His mercies are new every morning!
As we look unto the Lord, we find rest and peace --
For He is our peace! He is our strength.
When we are so weak, He is strong.
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
