Nearer My God to Thee

Post  Fenny West on Fri 31 Jul 2009, 3:18 pm

Nearer My God to Thee

Friend closer than brother

Your presence ever be

So far yet you’re so near.



I in you and you in me

O what a blessed bliss!



At your feet I will seat

Until your work is complete.

Feed me daily with your life

Light my life with your life.



Light my night with your light

To do only things that are right

Let me see through your eyes

That from the dung I might rise

Feel daily what you feel

Embrace fully the divine deal.



O that my feet will go Your way

Never delayed or going astray

O that my heart will pant for You

Entwined with Yours, singing to You.



O that my soul will be sold out to you

Thinking the thoughts that come from You.

By your Spirit woo me to your bosom

There to draw strength for any storm.

Wonderful poem Fenny and I loved it. After reading the first stanza, I remembered these words of the Jesus
No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from my Father I have made known to you. (John 15:5)
When I read faith-inspiring articles and poems, these words of Jesus come to life in my spirit and I can only praise Jesus for the understanding that He has given to all of us and specially to you that we can "understand" who Jesus is so that we may know who Heavenly Father is.

God bless you

What a wonderful God we serve who calls us His friends. You cannot find it in any other faith.

Friends for ever

We should be well pleased with God as a Friend, even when he seems against us as an enemy. We must believe that all shall work for good to us, even when all seems to make against us. We must cleave to God, yea, though we cannot for the present find comfort in him. In a dying hour, we must derive from him living comforts; and this is to trust in him, though he slay us.

Matthews Henry
