Where God’s command is our authority we can afford to be bold. Who shall gainsay us when the Lord of Hosts gives us leave? Fear, in such a case, is dishonour to our Invincible Commander. When the Lord is on his side, confidence is but the reasonable condition of a believing man.
By faith I on thy strength lay hold,
And walk in Christ my way,
Divinely confident and bold
Thy precepts to obey.
I would perform thy utmost will,
With heart most fixed and true;
And dare to follow onward still
Where Jesus bids me go.
We of Jehovah’s wrath have heard
The thunders from above;
And trusting his prophetic word,
Take refuge in his love.
Now in the window of our soul
The scarlet line we tie;
When judgment o’er the earth shall roll,
Its sword shall pass us by.
