This is My Story~

Thoughts flood my mind in the early morning hours
and I reach for any verses to calm my mind.
They flash at me like a neon billboard,
Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart,
I will NEVER leave you or forsake you,
Rejoice in Me, Rest in Me,
I am the everlasting God,
 I am a Strong Tower,
 I will sing songs of PRAISE 
no sooner do I meditate on those strong words,
when I sense fear creaping in again,
trying to find an open space to choke.
But the blanket comes, the peace falls, the fear slips away,
and HE rushes in...
inundated by HIS presence.
BLESSED ASSURANCE, JESUS IS MINE!!


Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.


Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above,
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness lost in His love.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.




holy experience

Thanks, Tracy, for this post. I was about to flip through the words of the song really fast since I've sung it for so many years--I slowed down and eyes stung very hot when I read "foretaste of glory divine."

Thanks for sharing this old but awesome and always relevant hymn.
