What assurance in my soul
On the stormy sea
He speaks peace to me
And the billows cease to roll
– Manie Payne Fergusen
“The ordinary acts we practice, every day at home, are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.”
The Lord has promised good to me…His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be…
as long as life endures
Through many dangers, toils and snares…
I have already come.
T’was grace that brought me safe thus far…
and grace will lead me home.
When we’ve been there ten thousand years…
bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise…
then when we’ve first begun.
Yes, though I walk
Through the valley
Of the shadow of death
You are with me
Your rod and Your staff
They comfort me.
“Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can,
to all the souls you can, in every place you can,
at all the times you can, with all the zeal you can,
as long as ever you can.”
“For the love of Christ constrains us…”
2 Corinthians 5:14
“He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
“Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.”
