Hymn 138

Hymn 138

Saints in the hands of Christ

Jn. 10:28,29.

Firm as the earth thy gospel stands,
My Lord, my hope, my trust;
If I am found in Jesus’ hands,
My soul can ne’er be lost.

His honor is engaged to save
The meanest of his sheep;
All that his heav’nly Father gave
His hands securely keep.

Nor death nor hell shall e’er remove
His favorites from his breast;
In the dear bosom of his love
They must for ever rest.



Poem Hymn 138 - Isaac Watts
