“God is faithful.” 1 Cor. 10. 13

P. Doddridge        L.M.

1
Now let the feeble all be strong,
And make Jehovah’s arm their song;
His shield is spread o’er every saint,
And thus supported, who shall faint?

2
What though the hosts of hell engage
With mingled cruelty and rage?
A faithful God restrains their hands,
And chains them down in iron bands.

3
Bound by his word, he will display
A strength proportioned to our day;
And when united trials meet,
Will show a path of safe retreat.

4
Thus far we prove that promise good,
Which Jesus ratified with blood;
Still is he gracious, wise, and just,
And still in him let Israel trust.
