Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice
I love this hymn by Lucy A. Bennett
O Fathomless mercy!
O infinite grace!
With humble thanksgiving the road I retrace,
Thou never hast failed me, my Strength and my Stay!
To whom should I turn for the rest of the way?
Through dangers, through darkness, by day and by night,
Thou ever hast guided and guided aright:
In Thee have I trusted, and peacefully lay
My hand in THY hand for the rest of the way.
The Cross all my refuge, Thy Blood all my plea,
None other I need, Blessed Jesus but Thee!
I fear not the shadows at close of life’s day,
For THOU wilt go with me the rest of the way.
