We sang “It is Well” in the Japanese service this morning. I wanted to read the lyrics in English, so did a lyric search. I was surprised to see two verses that I have never read before. They were such a blessing to me. I’m posting it today to encourage you in your Lord’s Day meditations.
For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.
But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!
~Horatio G. Spafford
