It is encouraging as we pursue
Our way through scenes of death to know
God has another world of life in view.
Mid this world’s hunger I have amplitude
Of sustenance as under God’s command
To go to Jesus for my seed and food.
There is defence from all that would defraud
God of response and me of joy and peace
Because my life is hid with Christ in God.
There is a flock and, in such company,
The Shepherd leads us to abundant life
Within the pastures of His liberty.
Lifted outwith this piteous world’s malaise
We know affection which surpasses thought
And lift to God a song of gladsome praise.
