Tender Shepherd
Now Playing: How often do we think of Him ?
Topic: Peaceful
One of the special memories of my early childhood is being put to bed with my godly mother singing us to sleep with the following hymn:

Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me;
Bless Thy little lamb tonight;
Through the darkness be Thou near me,
Watch my sleep till morning light.

All this day Thy hand hath led me,
And I thank Thee for Thy care;
Thou hast kept, and clothed, and fed me;
Listen to my humble prayer.

All my sins are now forgiven;
What my joyno tongue can tell;
Fit, O Lord, as Thine for heaven,
Happy there with Thee to dwell

Author: Mary Duncan
Meter: 8.7.8.7.
Suggested tune: Tender Shepherd
Composers: C & F Jouard

Come unto Him
Now Playing: Have we found rest for our soul ?
Topic: Peaceful
"Come unto Me and I will give you rest!"
What blessed words to weary ones addressed!
They come from Him who knew the depths of woe,
And felt for sinners as none here below.

"Come unto Me;" yes, come in all your sin!
Through Jesus' blood the vile may enter in,
May come to God, by perfect grace thus led,
ASssured that for themselves that blood was shed.

"Come unto Me;" the blessed Son of God
Thus told on earth, in every step He trod,
The heart of Him who is in nature love,
And is beseeching men that love to prove.

"Come unto Me;" yes, God Himself says "Come!"
He sees afar and runs to welcome home
Unworthy sinners who have nought to plead
But God's own love and their exceeding need.

"Come unto Me;" oh, blessed open door
For those who but for Christ had hoped no more!
Oh, love of God told out in full extent,
When Jesus to those depths of darkness went!

"Come unto Me;" for Christ the risen Lord
Now speaks from glory through the written word;
As Victor now He can with triumph shout,
That none who come to Him will He cast out.

He Giveth Quietness
Now Playing: Are we quiet from fear of evil ?
Topic: Peaceful
"Quiet from fear of evil"
Lord, give us this to know,
To Thy blest words to harken,
And Thou wilt peace bestow;
Thy blessed peace, Lord Jesus,
Thou would'st indeed impart
To those who hear Thee speaking,
Who know THy loving heart.

Quiet in scenes of turmoil,
Peaceful amidst the strife;
Sorrowful, yet rejoicing;
Dying, yet found in life.
Not fearing evil tidings,
Heart fixed on Thee alone,
Trusting Thy love almighty,
Faithful, unchanging One.

With trouble surging around us,
Unrest on every hand,
Thou'lt keep Thine own, Lord Jesus,
Until they reach that land---
Where tempest never rises,
Where there will be no night,
To dwell in bliss unclouded
With Thee in glory bright.

---Selected

"When He giveth quietness, who then can make trouble?"
(Job 34.29)

"But whoso hearkeneth unto Me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil."
(Proverbs 1.33)

"He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord."
(Psalm 112.7)
