WITHIN THE ARK
Within the Ark the tables of the law
Which God had written on by His own hand
Were cared for ‑ in the Ark Jehovah saw
His testimony carried to the land.
There was the manna in the golden pot
And Aaron's rod which budded ‑ evidence
Of what was suited to Jehovah's thought
And of the good it pleased Him to dispense.
And thus God's law was treasured in Christ's heart
As all His will was perfectly expressed;
While blessings God in Christ chose to impart
Delight Himself and those whom He has blessed.
Oh blessed Spirit, help my soul rejoice
In what in Christ makes Him the Father's choice!
