L.M.
by J.H. Evans
1
Rejoice, ye saints, rejoice and praise
 
The blessings of redeeming grace;
 
Jesus, our everlasting tower,
 
Mocks at the angry tempest's roar.
Philippians 3:1; Philippians 4:4; 1 Thessalonians 5:16; Psalm 107:2; Psalm 18:2; Mark 4:39; Mark 6:46-51
2
His love's a refuge ever nigh,
 
His watchfulness, a mountain high;
 
His name's a rock, which winds above
 
Nor waves below can ever move.
Deuteronomy 33:27; Psalm 121; Matthew 6:16-18
3
His faithfulness, forever sure,
 
For endless ages will endure;
 
His perfect work will ever prove
 
The depths of His unchanging love.
Lamentations 3:22-23; 2 Timothy 2:13
4
While all things change, He changes not,
 
Nor e'er forgets, though oft forgot;
 
His love's unchangeably the same,
 
And as enduring as His name.
Malachi 3:6; Jeremiah 2:2; Genesis 40:23; Psalm 106:13,21; Jeremiah 31:3; Psalm 72:17

But when they saw him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out. For they all saw him, and were troubled. And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid. And he went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.” (Mark 6:46-51)

That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.” (Matthew 6:16-18)
