The Afflicted Secure in Christ.  Job 5. 19;  Ps. 29. 10

J. Adams                      S.M.

1
The Lord in Zion reigns,
And will his people keep;
’Tis he the universe sustains,
And well secures his sheep.

2
Though with afflictions sore
He may them exercise;
Yet still his hand they shall adore,
And still his love shall prize.

3
Should poverty, and loss
Of every kind of good,
Conspire to make our weighty cross,
Our helper still is God.

4
May we for ever trust
And glory in his name;
Jesus, the faithful, true, and just,
For ever is the same!
