Communion with Christ is a Certain Cure For Every Ill

Communion with Christ
is a Certain Cure For Every Ill
Whether it be
the bitterness of woe
or the cloying overabundance of earthly delight,
close fellowship with the Lord Jesus
will take the gall from the one,
and the satiety from the other.

Live near to Jesus, Christian
and it is matter of secondary import
whether you live on the ‘mountain of honor’
or in the ‘valley of humiliation’.

Live near to Jesus
and the glowing coals of the furnace
cannot consume you,
nor the chill blasts
of wintry affliction destroy you.

Living near to Jesus,
you are covered with the wings of God
and underneath you are the everlasting arms.

Spurgeon

Hold Up, Hold On, Hold Out, Hold Fast

Believe firmly,
hope joyfully,
love fervently,
pray earnestly,
walk humbly,
work diligently
and wait quietly.

Hold up,
hold on,
hold out,
hold fast that which you have received.

Still watch,
still pray,
still believe
still fight and run,
that you may obtain.

It is but a little while
and He who comes will come
and will not tarry;
it is but a little while
and your warfare is accomplished
and your iniquities shall be everlastingly separated from you
your sin and sorrows,
tears and fears,
fled and gone—
gone forever
and you meet with an unspeakable reward.

John Mason (1646 – 1694)

Summertime lyrics

Summertime,
And the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’
And the cotton is high

Your daddy’s rich
And your mamma’s good lookin’
So hush little baby
Don’t you cry

One of these mornings
You’re going to rise up singing
Then you’ll spread your wings
And you’ll take to the sky

But till that morning
There’s a’nothing can harm you
With daddy and mamma standing by

Summertime,
And the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’
And the cotton is high

Your daddy’s rich
And your mamma’s good lookin’
So hush little baby
Don’t you cry
