**We have been singing this hymn together as a family recently during our evening Bible time. Josiah just learned to sing the first verse and, like most small ones with a new skill, he repeats it over and over. I love it.**
More Secure Is No One Ever
Carolina V. Sandell-Berg
More secure is no one ever
Than the loved ones of the Savior,
Not yon star on high abiding
Nor the bird in home nest hiding.
God His own doth tend and nourish;
In His holy courts they flourish.
From all evil things He spares them;
In His loving arms He bears them.
Neither life nor death shall ever
From the Lord His children sever;
Unto them His grace He showeth,
And their sorrows all He knoweth.
Little flock, to joy then yield thee!
Jacob’s God will ever shield thee;
Rest secure with this Defender—
At His will all foes surrender.
Tho’ He giveth or He taketh,
God His children ne’er forsaketh;
His the loving purpose solely
To preserve them pure and holy.
