• “In the darkest of nights cling to the assurance that God loves you, that He always has advice for you, a path that you can tread and a solution to your problem–and you will experience that which you believe. God never disappoints anyone who places his trust in Him.” – Basilea Schlink

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!’

  • “I never felt such an entire emptiness of self-love, or any regard to any private, selfish interest of my own. It seemed to me, that I had entirely done with myself. I felt that the opinions of the world concerning me were nothing, and that I had no more to do with any outward interest of my own, than with that of a person whom I never saw. The glory of God seemed to be all, and in all, and to swallow up every wish and desire of my heart” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards
