Poetry: Love’s Trinity (Isa 32:18)

O Surely, Lord, in this our day,
When strife and sorrow never cease,
Thy promise comes our hearts to stay;
“My people, they shall dwell in peace.”

How precious too, this word of Thine,
That cloth our failing hearts assure,
That naught can touch that ease Divine,
“My people – they shall dwell secure.”

But oh, to those that weary be,
By grief and pain, faint and opprest,
Most blest of that blest trinity:
“My people – they shall dwell at rest.”

And so, 0 Lord, we shall endure
Until we see Thy blessed face,
‘Till then we’ll dwell in peace, secure,
Thyself – our Quiet Resting Place.
