My Father, in a world of created changeable things,
Christ and his Word alone remain unshaken.
O to forsake all creatures, to rest as a stone on him the foundation,
to abide in him, be borne up by him!
For all my mercies come through Christ,
who has designed, purchased, promised, effected them.
How sweet it is to be near him, the Lamb,
filled with holy affections!
