284. Thou Hidden Source of Calm Repose

by C. Wesley
Thou hidden Source of calm repose!
Thou all-sufficient Love divine!
Our help and refuge from our foes,
Secure we are, for we are Thine;
And, lo! from guilt and grief and shame
We're hidden, Saviour, by Thy name.
John 14:27; John 16:33; Psalm 46:1; 2 Corinthians 6:18
Thy mighty name Salvation is,
And keeps our happy souls above;
Comfort it brings, and power and peace
And joy and everlasting love;
To us, with Thy dear name, are given
Pardon and holiness and heaven.
Matthew 1:21; Acts 4:12
Jesus, our all in all Thou art,
Our rest in toil, our ease in pain;
The medicine of a broken heart;
Mid storms, our peace; in loss, our gain;
Our smile beneath the tyrant's frown:
In shame, our glory and our crown.
Colossians 3:11; Matthew 11:28; Psalm 119:50; Psalm 147:3; Philippians 3:7-8
In want, our plentiful supply;
In weakness, our almighty power;
In bonds, our perfect liberty;
Our refuge in temptation's hour;
Our comfort, midst all grief and thrall,
Our life in death, our all in all.
Philippians 4:19; Philippians 4:13; Luke 4:18; 1 Corinthians 10:13; 2 Corinthians 1:1,5; John 11:25; Colossians 3:11

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)
