Items from the Past with In all my Lord’s appointed ways and How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord

In all my Lord’s appointed ways
My journey I’ll pursue;
Hinder me not! ye much loved saints,
For I must go with you.

Thro’ floods and flames, if Jesus lead,
I’ll follow where He goes;
Hinder me not! shall be my cry,
Tho’ earth and hell oppose.

Thro’ duty, and thro’ trials too,
I’ll go at His command;
Hinder me not! for I am bound
To my Immanuel’s land.

And when my Savior calls me home,
Still this my cry shall be,
Hinder me not! come, welcome death;
I’ll gladly go with Thee!

John Ryland
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in his excellent word!
What more can he say than to you he hath said,
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

In every condition-in sickness, in health;
In poverty’s vale, or abounding in wealth;
At home and abroad; on the land, on the sea-
“As thy days may demand, shall thy strength ever be.

“Fear not, I am with thee, O be not dismayed,
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
Upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand.

“When through the deep waters I call thee to go,
The rivers of woe shall not thee overflow;
For I will be with thee thy troubles to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.

“When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply,
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.

“E’en down to old age all my people shall prove
My sovereign, eternal, unchangeable love;
And when hoary hairs shall their temples adorn,
Like lambs they shall still in my bosom be borne.

“The soul that on Jesus still leans for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake!”

George Keith
