The Fulfilment of God’s Promise Sure. Hab. 2. 3

W. Gadsby    8s

1
My soul shall with wonder proclaim
The love of my Father and God,
Whose promises ever remain,
And each in its course is made good;
They’re great, and exceeding great too;
More precious than rubies by far;
Like streams from the fountain they flow,
And Zion preserve from despair.

2
Like Abra’m and Sarah, have I
Endeavoured with reason and wit,
Some blessing to get and enjoy
Much sooner than God promised it;
Like them too, I’ve proved in the end,
My labour brought bondage and pain;
And yet (O how faithful’s my Friend!)
In due time the true blessing came.
