Dabar [theme]

He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou find refuge: His truth is a shield and buckler
Psalms 91:4

Be it ours,when we cannot see the face of God, to trust under the shadow of His wings. C.H. Spugeon

Poet's Juncture

Blest proofs of power and grace divine,

That meet us in His word!
May every deep-felt care of mine
Be trusted with the Lord.



Wait for His seasonable aid,
And though it tarry, wait:
The promise may be long delay'd,
But cannot come too late.


Heal us, Emmanuel! here we are,

Waiting to feel Thy touch:
Deep-wounded souls to Thee repair
And, Saviour, we are such.


Our faith is feeble, we confess,
We faintly trust Thy word;
But wilt Thou pity us the less?
Be that far from Thee, Lord!


Remember him who once applied,
With trembling, for relief;
"Lord, I believe," with tears he cried,
"Oh, help my unbelief!"


She too, who touch'd Thee in the press,
And healing virtue stole,
Was answer'd, "Daughter, go in peace,
Thy faith hath made thee whole."

Conceal'd amid the gathering throng,
She would have shunn'd Thy view;
And if her faith was firm and strong,
Had strong misgivings too.


Like her, with hopes and fears we come,
To touch Thee, if we may;
Oh! send us not despairing home,
Send none unheal'd away!


William Cowper
