Reliance and Devotion

Image of tune I'll Lay My Armor Down (may not be posted yet)

335 (C.M.)

From east to west let others roam

And search in vain for bliss;

My soul is satisfied at home;

The Lord my portion is.

Jesus, who on His glorious throne

Rules heaven, and earth, and sea,

Is pleased to claim me for His own,

And give Himself to me.

His person fixes all my love,

His blood removes my fear;

And while He fills His throne above.

His arm preserves me here.

His word of promise is my food,

The Spirit is my guide;

Thus daily is my strength renewed,

And all my wants supplied.

For Him I count as gain each loss,

Disgrace for Him renown;

Well may I glory in His cross,

While He prepares my crown!

Let worldlings then indulge their boast,

How much they gain or spend;

Their joys must soon give up the ghost,

But mine shall know no end.
