Deuteronomy 33:17

The more we are set apart for the Lord, the more of blessing shall we receive; and as to the persecution brought on us thereby, we may cheerfully bear it as a light and momentary affliction.

 

The people whom the Lord hath brought

From Egypt’s cruel land,

For whom with wondrous deeds he fought

Are ever in his hand.

 

Stronger than death his love is shown;

Right well he doth defend;

And having freely loved his own

He’ll love them to the end.
