"My Time is Secure in Your Hands"
A Sermon for the New Year
by Rev. Frank Hughes, Jr.

"Thou Wilt Keep Him in Perfect Peace"

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”

-Isaiah 26:3 

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on Thee.”
When the shadows come and darkness falls,
He giveth inward peace.

O He is the only perfect Resting Place!
He giveth perfect peace.
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on Thee.”

In the shadow of the mighty Rock
I lay me down to sleep;
He who watches over Israel
So faithfully will keep.

‘Tis the promise of the Holy One:
“My peace I give to thee.”
Tho’ the storms of life in fury rage,
Thy Refuge sure is He.

John Rutter conducts his composition, "The Lord Bless You and Keep you."
God is faithful in His love for us and has given us Jesus as our Savior. The hymn "Great is Thy Faithfulness" speaks to that.
