We started our time with introductions, which were fun and entertaining. Then we sang a hymn which is a favorite of one of the students. It is an English hymn she learned from a missionary when she was in university. I had never heard it before, but love the lyrics! What peace we have in Him!
Constantly Abiding by Anne S Murphy
There's a peace in my heart that the world never gave,
a peace it cannot take away;
Though the trials of life may surround like a cloud,
I've a peace that has come there to stay!
Constantly abiding, Jesus is mine;
Constantly abiding, rapture divine;
He never leaves me lonely, whispers O so kind:
"I will never leave thee." Jesus is mine.
All the world seemed to sing of a Savior and King,
when peace sweetly came to my heart;
Troubles all fled away and my night turned to day,
blessed Jesus, how glorious Thou art!
This treasure I have in a temple of clay,
while here on His footstool I roam;
But He's coming to take me, some glorious day,
over there to my heavenly home!
