302. Immortal honours rest on Jesus’ head

Author: William Gadsby 1773-1844

Immortal honours rest on Jesus’ head,
my God, my portion and my living bread;
in him I live, upon him cast my care;
he saves from death, destruction and despair.

2. He is my refuge in each deep distress,
the Lord my strength and glorious righteousness;
through floods and flames he leads me safely on
and daily makes his sovereign goodness known.

3. My every need he richly will supply,
nor will his mercy ever let me die;
in him there dwells a treasure all divine
and matchless grace has made that treasure mine.

4. O that my soul could love and praise him more,
his beauties trace, his majesty adore,
live near his heart, rest in his love each day,
hear his dear voice and all his will obey.
