Tonight in our home meeting, I was reminded again of how merciful the Lord is and how much He loves us. To be honest I've been in a spiritual rut lately - allowing the enemy to deceive me and occupy my thoughts. But thankfully the Lord never gives up on us. Even though I am full of unrighteousness and full of sin, He gifted me His righteousness and grace to cover, support, comfort and heal me. "Lord, let Your healing streams abound..."
I was really touched by this hymn tonight. I hope you all will take a few minutes to enjoy it yourselves too. Click here to listen. :)
Jesus, lover of my soul,
Let me to Thy bosom fly,
While the nearer waters roll,
While the tempest still is high:
Hide me, O my Savior, hide,
Till the storm of life is past;
Safe into the haven guide;
O receive my soul at last.
Other refuge have I none,
Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
Leave, oh, leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me.
All my trust on Thee is stayed,
All my help from Thee I bring;
Cover my defenseless head
With the shadow of Thy wing.
Thou, O Christ, art all I want;
More than all in Thee I find;
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
Heal the sick and lead the blind.
Just and holy is Thy name,
I am all unrighteousness;
Vile and full of sin I am,
Thou art full of truth and grace.
Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
Grace to cover all my sin;
Let the healing streams abound;
Make and keep me pure within.
Thou of life the fountain art,
Freely let me take of Thee;
Spring Thou up within my heart,
Rise to all eternity.
