Like A River Glorious

Like a river glorious is God's perfect peace,
Over all victorious in its bright increase;
Perfect yet it floweth fuller every day,
Perfect yet it groweth deeper all the way.

Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
Never foe can follow, never traitor stand;
Not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,
Not a blast of hurry touch the spirit there.

Every joy or trial falleth from above,
Traced upon our dial by the Sun of Love;
We may trust Him fully all for us to do-
They who trust Him wholly find Him wholly true.

Chorus
Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest-
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.
~ Frances R. Havergal ~


Have a blessed Lord's Day!

Stephanie,

Such a lovely hymn! Recently I found a beautiful old book filled with the poem and hymns of Frances Ridley Havergal. I have enjoyed reading some in the evenings.

Have a blessed week!
