Jesus! What a friend for sinners!

Jesus, what a friend for sinners

Jesus! what a Friend for sinners!
Jesus! Lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me,
He, my Savior, makes me whole.


Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.

Jesus! what a Strength in weakness!
Let me hide myself in Him.
Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
He, my Strength, my victory wins.


Jesus! what a Help in sorrow!
While the billows over me roll,
Even when my heart is breaking,
He, my Comfort, helps my soul.


Jesus! what a Guide and Keeper!
While the tempest still is high,
Storms about me, night overtakes me,
He, my Pilot, hears my cry.


Jesus! I do now receive Him,
[or Jesus! I do now adore Him,]
More than all in Him I find.
He hath granted me forgiveness,
I am His, and He is mine.



We sang this hymn and How firm a foundation at H2O this Sunday. It was especially sweet because I had been reading David Powlinson's personal reflection article with these 2 hymns all last week. The music team didn't know this, God is so graciously sovereign.

I highly recommend the article.

One little word shall fell him

Job 17:1

Job 17:1

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.

A Mighty Fortress is our God, by Martin Luther.

In the midst of Job-like sufferings, God rules as the Sovereign King (Job 42:11).

O Child of God

O Child of God

This is a hymn by Fanny Crosby. It comforted my poor soul.

I almost thought about putting Psalm 30:5 or Psalm 39:7 on the picture.
Both the Psalms fit well with this theme of trustfully waiting on our God.

Isaiah 26:3

thanks to Jason for this great image and to God for His goodness to us

Psalm 6:3

Psalm 6
To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments; according to The Sheminith.
A Psalm of David.

O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger,
nor discipline me in your wrath.
Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing;
heal me, O LORD, for my bones are troubled.
My soul also is greatly troubled.
But you, O LORD--how long?
Turn, O LORD, deliver my life;
save me for the sake of your steadfast love.
For in death there is no remembrance of you;
in Sheol who will give you praise?
I am weary with my moaning;
every night I flood my bed with tears;
I drench my couch with my weeping.
My eye wastes away because of grief;
it grows weak because of all my foes.
Depart from me, all you workers of evil,
for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.
The LORD has heard my plea;
the LORD accepts my prayer.
All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled;
they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment.
