Like A River Glorious

Posted in Poetry, Update at 1:16 pm by Sarah Bosse

A friend of mine made me promise that I would study God’s peace last night.  I opened up my Bible after a long and difficult day, feeling – to be honest – about as dry as the Sahara desert.  I’m grateful that Truth is not dependent on feeling or emotion.  During my drive this morning, God reminded me of a song I had long forgotten.  But how it touched my soul!  It was perfectly what I needed for today.

Like A River Glorious
by Frances R. Havergal

Like a river glorious, is God’s perfect peace,
Over all victorious, in its bright increase;
Perfect, yet it floweth, fuller every day,
Perfect, yet it groweth, deeper all the way.

Refrain

Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.

Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
Never foe can follow, never traitor stand;
Not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,
Not a blast of hurry touch the spirit there.

Refrain

Every joy or trial falleth from above,
Traced upon our dial by the Sun of Love;
We may trust Him fully all for us to do.
They who trust Him wholly find Him wholly true.

Refrain
