In Heavenly Love Abiding

 

In heavenly love abiding,
No change my heart shall fear,
And safe is such confiding,
For nothing changes here.
The storm may roar without me,
My heart may low be laid,
But God is round about me,
And can I be dismayed?

Wherever He may guide me,
No want shall turn me back;
My Shepherd is beside me,
And nothing can I lack.
His wisdom ever waketh,
His sight is never dim;
He knows the way He taketh
And I will walk with Him.

Green pastures are before me,
Which yet I have not seen,
Bright skies will soon be o'er me,
Where the dark clouds have been.
My hope I cannot measure,
My path to life is free,
My Savior has my treasure,
And He will walk with me.

Ere yet another morning
My spirit may be free,
As absent from the body,
At home, O Lord, with Thee.
Oh sleep, oh rest, how precious!
As, guarded by Thy care,
I'm waiting for Thy promise
To meet Thee in the air.

The Lord Himself, e'en Jesus,
Amid the ransomed throng,
Its glory, joy and beauty,
Its never-ending song.
Oh day of wondrous promise!
The Bridegroom and the bride
Are seen in glory ever:
Forever satisfied.

Psalm 23:2-3 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he
leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Matthew 28:20 ...and, lo, I am with you alway, even
unto the end of the world. Amen.
