• “All that I know is that God is infinitely holy, righteous and happy; that all goodness is in Him; and that, as to myself, I am a mere nothing.” – Madame Guyon

The Unfailing One by Francis R. Havergal

‘He faileth not.’ Zep 3:5.

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!

  • “By confessing sin we gather strength to resist it; thereby the enemy of our souls is foiled, the conscience is kept tender, the heart is sanctified, and the blood of Jesus becomes increasingly precious. Let us constantly flee to the cleansing fountain!” – Mary Winslow
