The Trumpet Shall Sound

“O, Happy Thought!”

“For the Lord Himself shall come down from heaven with a commanding shout,

with the voice of the archangel and with the blast of God’s shofar

and the dead in Messiah shall rise first.

Then we who are alive, who are left behind, will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air

and so shall we always be with the Lord.”

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 TLV

All The Way, Everyday

red flowers in bloom

All the way my Savior leads me;

What have I to ask beside?

Can I doubt His tender mercy

Who through life has been my Guide

Heavenly peace, divinest comfort,

Here by faith in Him to dwell

For I know whate’er befall me

Jesus doeth all things well.

Yes, I know whate’er befall me

Jesus doeth all things well.

Hymn- “All The Way My Savior Leads Me” by Fanny Crosby

“Love So Amazing, So Divine”

cloudy sky above hilly terrain during sundown

 “When I survey the wondrous cross     On which the Prince of Glory died

My richest gain I count but loss      And pour contempt on all my pride

Were every realm of nature mine    My gift would still be far too small

Love so amazing, so divine

Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Hymn- “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross” by Isaac Watts

“By Trusting”

lighthouse

“By trusting you are being protected by God’s power for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

You rejoice in this greatly, even though for now for a little while… you have been distressed by various trials.

These trials are so that the “true metal” of your faith… may come to light in praise and honor and glory at the revelation of Yeshua Messiah.

Though you have not seen Him, you love Him.

And even though you don’t see Him now, you trust Him…”

– 1 Peter 1:5-8 TLV

Sweep Over My Spirit

Peace! Peace! Wonderful peace,

Coming down from the Father above,

Sweep over my spirit

Forever I pray

In fathomless billows of love.

I am resting tonight

In this wonderful peace,

Resting sweetly in Jesus’ control

For I’m kept from all danger

By night and by day,

And His glory is flooding my soul.

Peace! Peace! Wonderful Peace,

Coming down from the Father above,

Sweep over my spirit

Forever I pray

In fathomless billows of love.

Hymn- “Wonderful Peace”

W. Cooper and W. Cornell

Quiet Rest

There is a place of quiet rest,

Near to the heart of God,

A place where sin cannot molest,

Near to the heart of God.

There is a place of comfort sweet,

Near to the heart of God,

A place where we our Savior meet,

Near to the heart of God.

There is a place of full release,

Near to the heart of God,

A place where all is joy and peace,

Near to the heart of God.

O Jesus, blest redeemer,

Sent from the heart of God,

Hold us who wait before Thee,

Near to the heart God.

Hymn- “Near to the Heart of God”

By Cleland B. McAfee
