He Hideth My Soul

A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
  A wonderful Savior to me;
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
  Where rivers of pleasure I see.
  He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
  That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
He hideth my life in the depths of His love,
  And covers me there with His hand,
    And covers me there with His hand.
A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
  He taketh my burden away;
He holdeth me up and I shall not be moved,
  He giveth me strength as my day.
With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,
  And, filled with His fulness divine,
I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God,
  For such a Redeemer as mine!
When clothed in His brightness, transported I rise
  To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
His perfect salvation, His wonderful love,
  I’ll shout with the millions on high.

At five this morning the Spirit of the Lord wakened me with the words of this comforting song. Yes Jesus loves me and I am His child, held securely by His love that will not let me go! Thank You Jesus!

I still like this hymn of adoration to my protecting saviour. Some time ago I read the following modern hymn.....

Jesus in the Father's Name

From the realm of Heaven came

To this world of sin and shame

And offered love that will never die.

Took on our humanity

Paid the price to set us free

Paved the way to victory

For on the cross He was lifted high!

This hymn is filled with the love of Christ, a wonderful Christ exalting work. It could only be written by someone who loved Him deeply.

I like this hymn. The psalmist writes 'lead me to the rock that is higher than I'. We all need protecting from difficulty at times, and the protection may come from a rock shielding us from the heat of a battle.

The Lord Jesus is THE rock who is higher (in Heaven) than any of us. He alone can protect us from the burden and consequences of our sin, as Saviour of His people. This hymn speaks much of how wonderful the Lord Jesus is. He can be our salvation rock, higher than we are, from the guilt and punishment of our sin if we repent and believe the gospel.

To God be the glory, great things He has done!
