A Hymn for the Elderly

There are three books essential for my own personal devotional walk: the Holy Bible, the Pilgrim’s Progress, and a good hymnbook. This past week I have enjoyed a hymn by Augustuss Toplady and the line “I muse on the years that are past” made me realize what a blessing this particular hymn would be for our elderly saints.

A Sov’reign Protector I have,

Unseen, yet forever at hand,

Unchangeably faithful to save,

Almighty to rule and command.

He smiles, and comforts about;

His grace as the dew shall descend;

And walls of salvation surround

The soul He delights to defend.

Inspirer and Hearer of prayer,

Thou Shepherd and Guardian of Thine,

My all to Thy covenant care

I sleeping and waking resign.

If Thou are my Shield and my Sun,

The night is no darkness to me;

And fast as my moments roll on,

They bring me but nearer to Thee.

Kind Author, and ground of my hope,

Thee, Thee, for my God I avow;

My glad Ebenezer set up,

And own Thou hast helped me till now.

I muse on the years that are past,

Wherein my defense Thou has proved;

Nor wilt Thou relinquish at last

A sinner so signally loved!
