I have just received a biography of the beloved Christian hymnwriter and sister in Christ from the 19th century, Frances Ridley Havergal. I will be sharing more about the biography later, but I wanted to share this poem from Havergal’s book, Loyal Responses.
Resting on the faithfulness of Christ our Lord
Resting on the fulness of His own sure word,
Resting on His power on His love untold;
Resting on His covenant secured of old.
Resting and believing, let us unward press;
Resting in Himself, the Lord our Righteousness;
Resting and rejoicing, let His saved ones sing,
Glory, glory, glory be to Christ our King.
–Frances Ridley Havergal
