We Love God!

God: "I looked for someone to take a stand for me, and stand in the gap" (Ezekiel 22:30)

Man is surrounded by the wonders of God.


ARE thy toils and woes increasing?
Are the Foe’s attacks unceasing?
Look with Faith unclouded,
Gaze with eyes unshrouded,
On the Cross!

Dost thou fear that strictest trial?
Tremblest thou at Christ’s denial?
Never rest without it,
Clasp thine arms about it, —
That dear Cross!

Diabolic legions press thee?
Thoughts and works of sin distress thee?
It shall chase all terror,
It shall right all error, —
That sweet Cross!

Draw’st thou nigh to Jordan’s river?
Shouldst thou tremble? Need’st thou quiver?
No, if by it lying,—
No, if on .it dying,—
On the Cross!

Say, then, “Master, while I cherish
That sweet hope, I cannot perish!
After this life’s story,
Give Thou me the glory
For the Cross!”
