• “Lead me, Lord, to the Rock that is higher than I. Let me hear your word, give me grace to obey, to build steadily, stone upon stone, day by day, to do what You say. Establish my heart where floods have no power to overwhelm, for Christ’s sake. Amen.” – Elisabeth Elliot

The Unfailing One

‘He faileth not.’— Zeph. iii. 5.

I.
He who hath led, will lead
All through the wilderness ;
He who hath fed, will feed;
He who hath blessed, will bless
He who hath heard thy cry,
Will never close His ear;
He who hath marked thy faintest sigh.
Will not forget thy tear. He loveth always, faileth never ;
So rest on Him, to-day, for ever!
II.
He who hath made thee whole
Will heal thee day by day;
He who hath spoken to thy soul
Hath many things to say.
He who hath gently taught
Yet more will make thee know;
He who so wondrously hath wrought
Yet greater things will show.
He loveth always, faileth never;
So rest on Him, to-day, for ever !
III.
He who hath made thee nigh
Will draw thee nearer still;
He who hath given the first supply
Will satisfy and fill.
He who hath given thee grace
Yet more and more will send;
He who hath set thee in the race
Will speed thee to the end.
He loveth always, faileth never ;
So rest on Him, to-day, for ever !
IV.
He who hath won thy heart
Will keep it true and free ;
He who hath shown thee what thou art
Will show Himself to thee.
He who hath bid thee live.
And made thy life His own.
Life more abundantly will give.
And keep it His alone ;
He loveth always, faileth never ;
So rest on Him, to-day, for ever!
V.
Then trust Him for to-day
As thine unfailing Friend,
And let Him lead thee all the way,
Who loveth to the end.
And let the morrow rest
In His beloved hand;
His good is better than our best.
As we shall understand,—
If, trusting Him who faileth never.
We rest on Him, to-day, for ever

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
