ENCOURAGEMENT FROM PAST MERCIES




Why should I yield to slavish fears?
God is the same to endless years:
Tho’ clouds and darkness hide his face,
He’s boundless both in truth and grace.


Would e’er the God of truth make known
The worth and glory of his Son;
His love and righteousness display,
And cast my soul at last away?


Would he reveal my sin and woe—
Teach me my num’rous wants to know,
And help me in my darkest frame,
To build my hopes on Jesu's name?


Would God preserve my soul from hell,
And make his love at times prevail,
Would he bestow such mercies past,
And yet reject my soul at last?


No—He’s my Father and my Friend;
On whose sure promise I depend;
Tho' now from me his face he hides,
Immutable his love abides.


Satan shall ne’er o’er Jesus boast,
Nor the rich grace be ever lost:
The Spirit ne’er his dwelling lose,
Nor Christ the humble soul refuse.


Tho’ unbelief may long molest,
And sin and satan break my rest:
Grace shall at last the vict'ry get,
And make my conquest quite complete.
