Christ My Song - 936
Rejoice, believer, in the Lord - Perseverance
(John Newton/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
2. Though many foes beset your road,
and feeble is your arm;
your life is hid with Christ in God,
beyond the reach of harm.
3. Weak as your are, you shall not faint,
or, fainting, shall not die;
Jesus, the strength of every saint,
will aid you from on high.
4. Though sometimes unperceived by sense,
faith sees him always near,
a Guide, a Glory, a Defence;
then what have you to fear?
5. As surely as he overcame,
and triumphed once for you,
so surely you that love his name
shall triumph in him too.
(2,3: Colossians 3,2. – 3,3: Isaiah 40,29.)
John Newton, Olney Hymns, book 3, hymn 84.
