A little while, and ye shall not see Me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see Me, because I go to the Father. (John 16:16)
If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself. (John 14:3)
Away with our sorrow and fear! We soon shall have entered our home, The heavenly city appear, The day of our glory have come! From earth we shall quickly remove, To dwell in our proper abode, In mansions of glory above — The house of our Father and God.
My God hath sent His angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me. (Dan. 6:22)
Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me … and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. (2 Tim. 4:17)
Thou servant of the living God, While lions round thee roar, Look up and trust and praise His name, And all His ways adore; For even now, in peril dire, He works to set thee free, And in a way known but to Him, Shall thy deliverance be.
My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For when I am weak, then am I strong. (2 Cor. 12:9‑10)
I could not do without Thee! For oh! the way is long, And I am often weary, And sigh replaces song; How dreary and how lonely This changeful life would be Without the sweet communion, The secret rest with Thee!
Godliness with contentment is great gain. (1 Tim. 6:6)
All the way my Savior leads me; What have I to ask beside? Can I doubt His tender mercy, Who through life has been my Guide? Heavenly peace, divinest comfort, Here by faith in Him to dwell! For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.
All the way my Savior leads me; Oh, the fullness of His love! Perfect rest to me is promised In my Father’s house above; When my spirit, clothed immortal, Wings its flight to realms of day; This my song through endless ages: Jesus led me all the way.
I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against Him, until He plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: He will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold His righteousness. (Mic. 7:9)
Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God. (1 Peter 3:18)
The perfect righteousness of God Is witnessed in the Savior’s blood; ’Tis in the cross of Christ we trace His righteousness, yet wondrous grace.
The sinner who believes is free, Can say, “The Savior died for me”: Can point to the atoning blood And say, “This made my peace with God.”
Not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? (Rom. 8:23‑24)
We through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. (Gal. 5:5)
In hope we lift our wishful, longing eyes, Waiting to see the Morning Star arise; How bright, how gladsome will His advent be, Before the Sun shines forth in majesty.
No stain within; no foes or snares around; No jarring notes shall there discordant sound; All pure without, all pure within the breast; No thorns to wound, no toil to mar our rest.
