27*. A Mind at "Perfect Peace" With God

C.M.
by C. Paget
1
A mind at "perfect peace" with God:
 
Oh, what a word is this!
 
A sinner reconciled through blood:
 
This, this indeed is peace!
Isaiah 26:3; Romans 5:10
2
By nature and by practice far,
 
How very far from God!
 
Yet now by grace brought nigh to Him,
 
Through faith in Jesus' blood.
Luke 15:13; Ephesians 2:13
3
So nigh, so very nigh to God,
 
I cannot nearer be;
 
For in the person of His Son,
 
I am as near as He.
Ephesians 2:13; Colossians 3:3
4
So dear, so very dear to God,
 
More dear I cannot be;
 
The love wherewith He loves the Son,
 
Such is His love to me.
John 17:23,26; John 15:9
5
Why should I ever careful be,
 
Since such a God is mine?
 
He watches o'er me night and day,
 
And tells me, "Thou art Mine."
Philippians 4:6; 1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 121
