Hitherto the Lord hath helped us,
Guiding all the way;
Henceforth let us trust Him fully,
Trust Him all the day.
Hitherto the Lord bath loved us,
Caring for His own;
Henceforth let us love Him better,
Live for Him alone.
Hitherto the Lord hath blessed us,
Crowning all our days;
Henceforth let us live to bless Him,
Live to show His praise.—Frances Ridley Havergal
(1 Sam. 7. 12; 2 Cor. 5. 15)
