He Hideth My Soul

A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
A wonderful Savior to me;
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
Where rivers of pleasure I see.

A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
He taketh my burden away,
He holdeth me up and I shall not be moved,
He giveth me strength as my day.

With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,
And filled with His fullness divine,
I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God!
For such a Redeemer as mine.

When clothed with His brightness transported I rise
To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
His perfect salvation, His wonderful love,
I’ll shout with the millions on high.

He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
He hideth my life in the depths of His love,
And covers me there with His hand,
And covers me there with His hand.
- Fanny J. Crosby -

And it shall come to pass, 
while my glory passeth by, 
that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, 
and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by.
- Exodus 33:22 -

Have a most blessed Lord's Day, precious friends!

What lovely flowers. Are they from your yard?

I am so happy that the church we go to is filled with wonderful, loving people. The preaching is full of scripture and so powerful.

Have a beautiful week, dear friend.

Oh, dear Stephanie, I agree with the others above that this is one of my favorite older hymns. These are such amazing and dear words, and what a precious melody as well. What a blessing Fanny Crosby was in her life and even now lives a lasting impact for Christ! I love the beautiful floral pictures you've included that add more beauty to this Lord's Day post. I so love them and look forward to seeing and reading them! Thank you, dearest and loved friend! Hugs! xoxo

All this prettiness in pink reminds me of the sweet minature pink tea set you sent me. Did I remember to thank you? If not... Thank you most affectionately. I have been oh-so-busy lately. My son turned 18 on Sunday! The summer certainly has flown by. Thank you for this beautiful post and the time you spent creating it. School starts tomorrow, for one of my daycare Littles, so things will get a little more hectic. I pray your days are pleasant, and your weather refreshing. Hugs to you! ~Heather
