Sunday Hymns - Like a River Glorious

Like a river glorious is God’s perfect peace,
Over all victorious, in its bright increase;
Perfect, yet it floweth fuller every day,
Perfect, yet it groweth deeper all the way.

      Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
    Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.


Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
Never foe can follow, never traitor stand;
Not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,
Not a blast of hurry touch the spirit there.

Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
    Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.


Every joy or trial falleth from above,
Traced upon our dial by the Sun of Love;
We may trust Him fully all for us to do;
They who trust Him wholly find Him wholly true

Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
    Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.


-Frances R. Havergal, 1876

  3. Jessica,

    What a joy to stop by your blog and see lyrics to a familiar, beloved hymn. There is nothing quite as wonderful and meaningful as those old hymns of the church.

    Blessings to you today.

Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
