Only In Jesus
The eternal God is your refuge,
Holding you up, keeping you close.
There’s a comfort in His presence
Only the child of faith truly knows.
Peace that passeth all understanding,
Guarding your spirit and your mind;
Assurance from the heart of God,
That only the trusting soul can find.
Underneath are His everlasting arms;
Lifting you up from the miry clay,
Covering you with His sheltering wings,
Giving you the strength you need each day.
Only in Jesus is that perfect peace,
Only in Jesus can you find that rest,
That yoke, walking side by side with Him –
In the hands of the Saviour you are blessed.
Only in Jesus.

(Dedicated to my friend, Julie. May the Lord hold you close in His everlasting arms during this trying time.)
Deuteronomy 33:27a The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms:
Deuteronomy 33:25 Thy shoes shall be iron and brass; and as thy days, so shall thy strength be.
Psalms 138:3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
Isaiah 40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
Matthew 11:28-30 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Philippians 4:6-7 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
