It is very comforting to know that when one good man dies another is ready to take his place. God is never at a loss for a man. His people shall not fail for lack of a leader.
Moses beheld the promised land,
Yet never reach’d the place;
But Christ shall bring his followers home,
To see his Father’s face.
Of Canaan’s land, from Pisgah’s top,
Grant me, my Lord, a view;
Though Jordan should o’erflow its banks,
With thee I’ll venture through.
