19. God commendeth his love toward us,
in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ
died for us. ROM. 5:8.
The cross, its burden, oh how great!
No strength but his could bear its weight;
No love but his would undertake,
To bear it for the sinner’s sake.
Much more then, being now justified
by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. ROM. 5:9.
20. Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your
heart, all ye that hope in the Lord. PSA. 31:24.
Ye humble souls, in every strait,
On God with sacred courage wait;
His hand will life and strength afford,
Oh, ever wait upon the Lord.
Be not afraid, only believe. MARK 5:36.
21. His anger endureth but a moment;
in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. PSA. 31:5.
Since all that I meet
Shall work for my good,
The bitter is sweet, The medicine is food:
Though painful at present,
‘T will end before long,
And then, oh how pleasant
The conqueror’s song.
Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me.
Lord, be thou my helper. PSA. 30:10.
