Today’s hymn reminds me of Christ’s compassion on sinners like me. He well knows our myriad weaknesses and failings, yet He gently loves us through each one of them because of His goodness.
This hymn particularly ministers to me this weekend. A dear brother in the Lord from our former church is, unless God intervenes soon (and please pray for a miracle), is losing his battle with cancer. I thought of his wife and children as I listened to the third verse yesterday, and I pray they will cling to Jesus during this heartbreaking time.
In hard times and joyful times, Jesus stands with us, keeping us till the end.
