The Fullness of His Love
When He leads me through the valley,
When He hides me in His hand
As the waves are crashing o’er me
Till I can no longer stand,
Then I rest upon His goodness
In the sweetness of His love,
Where His tender lovingkindness
Points my heart to look above.
When He shields me in His mercy,
When He guards me by His grace
From temptation raging round me
In this dark and sinful place,
Then I lean upon His power
Stronger than the strongest pull
And I taste through danger’s hour
All His nature pure and full.
When He keeps me in His kindness,
When He holds me to His heart –
O the blessing of His goodness
And the peace He can impart.
Then I whisper in the stillness,
“Here I am, O Lord, Your own.”
And He shows to me a fullness
Of His love I had not known.
