What a debt of love we owe Him

(Mary Winslow)

How wondrous that we are not lost, and lost forever,
living in a world lying in the wicked one! No power
short of Omnipotence could preserve us from his
malice, or foil his deeply laid schemes for our ruin.

How tenderly is Jesus watching over us!

His sleepless eye of love ever upon us.

He is a Friend to guide us through the wilderness,
encircled, as we are, by a host of beasts of prey.

What a debt of love we owe Him who, seeing
our danger, ran to our rescue, and undertook our
eternal salvation!
