Our heart shall rejoice in Him because…

Our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name.—Psalm 33:21.

 

On our way rejoicing as we homeward move,

Hearken to our praises, O Thou God of love!

Is there grief or sadness? Thine it cannot be!

Is our sky beclouded? Clouds are not from Thee!

On our way rejoicing as we homeward move,

Hearken to our praises, O Thou God of love!

J. B. S. Monsell.

 

My position has come to this, Am I living near my Savior; then I am as happy as the day is long, and as light-hearted as a child. It may be that I have plenty of annoyances, but they don’t trouble me when His presence is with me. Am I downcast and worried: then I am away from God.

John Kenneth MacKenzie.

 

We may sing beforehand, even in our winter storm, in the expectation of a summer sun at the turn of the year; no created powers can mar our Lord Jesus’ music, nor spill our song of joy. Let us then be glad and rejoice in the salvation of our Lord; for faith had never yet cause to have wet cheeks, and hanging-down brows, or to droop or die.

Samuel Rutherford.
