Sunday Hymn - Stayed upon Jehovah

This morning, my husband is preaching on Psalm 91 which begins with

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

Psalm 91 is one of my favourite Psalms and it reminds me of one of my favourite hymns - "Like a River Glorious". I know I've posted this one before but it seemed like a good opportunity to restart my blog (see the next post, hopefully this week).

Like a river glorious, is God’s perfect peace,
Over all victorious, in its bright increase;
Perfect, yet it floweth, fuller every day,
Perfect, yet it groweth, deeper all the way.
Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.
Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
Never foe can follow, never traitor stand;
Not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,
Not a blast of hurry touch the spirit there.
Every joy or trial falleth from above,
Traced upon our dial by the Sun of Love;
We may trust Him fully all for us to do.
They who trust Him wholly find Him wholly true.

(The sermon will be posted at Calvary Grace's website tonight or tomorrow. I'm sure it will be worth listening to!)
