Hymns of the Past – Lord, It Belongs not to My Care

Today we had communion and the thought once again occurred to me that eternity is hard to wait for. As soon as the thought hits me, I think of how sorrowful my husband and daughter would be if I passed into eternity this soon. Yet still that Celestial City is such a promise as holds my heart. If not for my family, both the body of Christ and flesh, there would be little appeal to this world. I’ll continue to live into the glory of God, with these thoughts in mind, our future awaits and it is eternal, beloved. I hope this hymnal blesses you, it certainly does a better job explaining what I mean then I have. As always dear ones, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Lord, it belongs not to my care

whether I die or live:

to love and serve thee is my share,

and this thy grace must give.

Christ leads me through no darker rooms

than he went through before;

he that into God’s kingdom comes

must enter by this door.

Come, Lord, when grace hath made me meet

thy blessed face to see;

for if thy work on earth be sweet,

what will thy glory be!

Then shall I end my sad complaints

and weary, sinful days,

and join with the triumphant saints

that sing my Saviour’s praise.

My knowledge of that life is small,

the eye of faith is dim;

but ’tis enough that Christ knows all,

and I shall be with him.

Richard Baxter
