The most delightful doctrine!
I am sure there is no more delightful doctrine
Christian, than that of CHRIST'S ABSOLUTE SOVEREIGNTY!
I am glad there is no such thing as 'chance',
that nothing is left to itself,
but that Christ everywhere has sway.
If I thought that there was a devil in hell that Christ did not
govern, I should be afraid that devil would destroy me.
If I thought there was a circumstance on earth, which Christ did
not over-rule, I should fear that circumstance would ruin me.
Nay, if there were an angel in heaven that was not one
of Jehovah's subjects, I should tremble even at him.
But since Christ is King of kings, and I am his poor brother,
one whom he loves, I give all my cares to him, for he cares
for me; and leaning on his breast, my soul has full repose,
confidence, and security.
