Hymns of the Past – Lord, it Belongs Not to my Care

What a beautiful hope we have, dear ones! This hymn depicts it well, although we have very small insights into what will be on the other side waiting for us, we know one thing for sure. Our Lord is there. Where He is, our hearts long to be.

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

    1. It’s a difficult season, I think perhaps you’ll understand like many others of our brothers and sisters with as many lost souls in our family. When holidays come around I have my lost family members brought before me even more often in prayer. They all gather together and enjoy one another’s company, and my heart aches for them to repent and place their faith in Christ! It’s hymns like this that comfort me, and reminds me to give thanks in all things. What a great hope we have!

      1. Yes, it’s a difficult season when family and friends celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas but haven’t accepted Christ. I pray we have many opportunities to interject Jesus into conversations the next six weeks.
