300: More Secure Is No One Ever (Late for Wednesday Post)

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

More secure is no one ever

Than the loved ones of the Savior —

Not yon star on high abiding

Nor the bird in home-nest hiding.

2

God His own doth tend and nourish,

In His holy courts they flourish;

Like a father kind He spares them,

In His loving arms He bears them.

3

Neither life not death can ever

From the Lord His children sever,

For His love and deep comapassion

Comforts them in tribulation.

4

Little flock, to joy then yield thee!

Jacob’s God will ever shield thee;

Rest secure with this Defender —

at His will all foes surrender.

5

What He takes or what He gives us

Shows the Father’s love so precious;

We may trust His purpose wholly —

‘Tis His children’s welfare solely.
