If I could but reach out, and touch His hem
By Tyre and Sidon's coastal waters dwell
Or hear the words "neither do I condemn"
At noonday come to draw, from Sychar's well
I'd gaze full on my Saviour's lovely face
In wonder at His mercy, love and grace
Infirmities and weaknesses o'erwhelm
I crave the crumbs that from the tables, fall
Great powers of darkness, buffet and condemn
An empty cistern aches, within my soul
E'en though my Saviour's cross, I've clearly seen
The veil is clouded now, that lies between
Wounded and bruised, 'tis by Thy stripes, I'm healed
Oh Bread of Life, I'll hunger now no more
Forgiven, I stand redeemed and reconciled
This earthen vessel, treasure, has in store
Of this, my privileged soul-reality
Dear Saviour may I ever conscious be
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed
2 Corinthians 6-9 KJV
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
