Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
Words: John Killinghall (?–1740). Published in Life of Faith Exemplified and Recommended in a Letter Found in the Study of the Rev. Joseph Belcher, Late of Dedham, New England (London: 1741).
If you know where to get a good picture of Killinghall or Baker (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels),
In all my troubles, sharp and long,
[Or, In every trouble, sharp and strong]
My soul to Jesus flies;
My anchor-hold is firm on Him,
When swelling billows rise.
His comforts bear my spirits up,
I trust a faithful God;
The sure foundation of my hope
Is in a Savior’s blood.
Loud alleluias sing, my soul,
To Thy Redeemer’s name;
In joy, in sorrow, life and death,
His love is still the same.
