• “Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge, your hiding place, you stronghold, your shepherd, your counselor, your friend, your redeemer, your saviour, your guide? If He is, you don’t need to search any further for security.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Thirtieth Day – Loyal Responses – by Francis R. Havergal

Tried, Precious, Sure

‘The Same yesterday, and to-day, and for ever.’—Heb. xiii. 8.

‘A stone, a tried stone, a precious comer stone, a sure foundation.’—Isa. xxviii. 16.

I.
THROUGH the yesterday of ages, Jesus,
Thou hast been The Same;
Through our own life’s chequered pages,
Still the one dear changeless Name.
Well may we in Thee confide.
Faithful Saviour, proved and * tried ! *

II.
Joyfully we stand and witness
Thou art still to-day The Same;
In Thy perfect, glorious fitness,
Meeting every need and claim.
Chiefest of ten thousand Thou !
Saviour, O most * precious,’ now!

III.
Gazing down the far for ever,
Brighter glows the one sweet Name,
Steadfast radiance paling never,
Jesus, Jesus ! still The Same.
Evermore *Thou shalt endure
Our own Saviour, strong and ‘sure!’

  • ”As we grow spiritually, God begins to wean us from things that we think we can’t live without: things, comfort, the longing for life to ‘work.’ That’s a childish instinct, to say, ‘Life has to work the way I want it to work, and now’.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss
