256. Praise the Saviour, Ye Who Know Him

8,8,8,5.

1
Praise the Saviour, ye who know Him,
 
Who can tell how much we owe Him?
 
Gladly let us render to Him
 
All we have and are.
2
Jesus is the name that charms us,
 
He for conflict fits and arms us,
 
Nothing moves and nothing harms us
 
While we trust in Him.
“Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness. And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” (Ephesians 6:11-17)
“But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” (Acts 20:24)
“<<A Song of degrees.>> They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.” (Psalm 125:1)
3
Trust in Him, ye saints, forever,
 
He is faithful, changing never;
 
Neither force nor guile can sever
 
Those He loves from Him.
“Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” (Psalm 37:5)
“Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)” (Hebrews 10:23)
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” (Hebrews 13:8)
4
Keep us, Lord, oh keep us cleaving
 
To Thyself and still believing,
 
Till the hour of our receiving
 
Promised joys with Thee.
5
Then we shall be where we would be,
 
Then we shall be what we should be;
 
Things that are not now nor could be
 
Soon shall be our own.
