Communion with Christ is a Certain Cure For Every Ill
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.
