Words by Carolina Berg
Translated by Ernst Olson
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me,
hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life."
More secure is no one ever,
Than the loved ones of the Savior;
Not yon star on high abiding,
Nor the bird in home nest hiding.
God His own doth tend and nourish,
In His holy courts they flourish;
Like a Father kind He spares them,
In His loving arms He bears them.
Neither life nor death can ever,
From the Lord His children sever;
For His love and deep compassion,
Comfort them in tribulation.
Little flock, to joy then yield thee!
Jacob's God will ever shield thee;
Rest secure with this Defender,
At His will all foes surrender.
What He takes or what He gives us,
Shows the Father's love so precious;
We may trust His purpose wholly,
'Tis His children's welfare solely.
