This Revelation by Phoebe Palmer

This Revelation — holy, just, and true—

Though oft I read, it seems forever new ;

While light from Heaven upon its pages rest,

I feel its power, and with it I am blest.


Within its leaves, it grace divine displays,
Makes known the Almighty’s will, in various ways ;
Justice, it speaks, to those who heaven defy,
And with ungracious lips its truths deny.


‘Tis here the wearied one, in sin’s rough road,
May find the path mark’d out that leads to God,
And when oppressed by earth, all here may find
Sweet promises of peace to cheer the mind.


To this blest treasure, O my soul, attend,
Here find a firm and everlasting friend —
A friend in all life’s varied changes sure,
Which shall to all eternity endure.


Henceforth, I take thee as my future guide,
Let naught from thee my youthful heart divide
And then, if late or early death be mine.
All will be well, since I, O Lord, am thine!

  • “In all places and at all times, we can have that familiar friendship, we can have Him with us; and there may be through the day a constant interchange of private words, of little offerings, too small to have any name attached to them—by which the bonds of that familiar friendship grow closer and more real, until it comes to that special personal intimacy, which we call sanctity.” – Janet Erskine Stuart, 1857-1914
