Twenty-Sixth Day – Loyal Responses – by Francis R. Havergal

I Am With Thee

I.
‘I AM with thee !’ He hath said it
In His truth and tender grace j
Sealed the promise, grandly spoken,
With how many a mighty token
Of his love and faithfulness.

II.
He is with thee !—In thy dwelling,
Shielding thee from fear of ill;
All thy burdens kindly bearing,
For thy dear ones gently’caring,
Guarding, keeping, blessing still.

III.
He is with thee !—In thy service
He is with thee ‘ certainly,’
Filling with the Spirit’s power,
Giving in the needing hour
His own messages by thee.

IV.
He is with thee !—With thy spirit,
With thy lips, or with thy pen ;
In the quiet preparation,
In the heart-bowed congregation,
Nevermore alone again !

V.

All the nights and all the days;
Never failing, never frowning,
With His loving-kindness crowning.
Tuning all thy life to praise.

VI.

Leading, loving to the end ;
Brightening joy and lightening sorrow,
All today, yet more to-morrow.

Now, and through eternity;
Then with Him for ever dwelling,
Thou shalt share His joy excelling.
Thou with Christ and Christ with thee I

Verse of the Day

Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain. — Philippians 2:14-16 (NKJV)
