Encouragement

These songs are running through my head this morning -- thought I'd share them with you!
The Solid Rock
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name
.


When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,

My anchor holds within the veil.


His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.


When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne
.


On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
Edward Mote, c.1834

He Never Has Failed Me Yet
When I travel the pathway so rugged and steep,
When I pass thro’ the valley so dark and so deep,
And when snares for my soul by my foes have been set,
Jesus never has failed me yet.

So I walk by His side thro’ the heat of the day.
Where He leads me I follow; His will I obey.
And He makes me to conquer the ills that beset,
For He never has failed me yet.

Then I’ll dread not the future, and fear not the foe,
I am safe in His keeping wherever I go;
For no soul that has trusted Him will He forget,
For He never has failed me yet.

He never has failed me yet. He never has failed me yet.
I have proven Him true; what He says He will do.
 W. J. Henry
