John 5:24
"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.
