Rest In Jesus

February 26, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

As the Preacher in Ecclesiastes noted, "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven."  (Ec. 3:1) Lately in our small community it has seemed that the 'time to die' has come to many dear neighbors and friends. We've had a lot of funerals lately. Just last week we got the news that two dear ladies had gone to meet their Savior.  While it is certainly our joy that they are free from their sickness and pain and suffering, we also grieve with their family members.  May the God of all comfort strengthen your hearts.

 

Rest In Jesus, as a child would,

Safely in his father's arms,

He will hold you, He will keep you

In His mercy, safe from harm.

Rest in Jesus, soul be patient,

Wait on Him, be still, tired heart:

His grace for you is sufficient,

He'll empower your weakest part.

Rest in Jesus, oh the joy here!

He works what you cannot see;

Confident, then trust His promise:

"Where I am, there you shall be."

Rest in Jesus 'mid the struggle

Just to draw another breath:

As H raised up Jesus, surely

He will give you life through death.

Rest in Jesus, His the battle,

His the victory o'er the grave:

Death no more has power to harm you;

Jesus keeps you: Jesus saves.

Rest in Jesus, as a child would,

Safely in His father's arms;

He will hold you, He will keep you

In His mercy, safe from harm.
