Constantly Abiding

Anne’s hus­band Will ran a pot­tery bus­i­ness in Ohio. How­ev­er, she was wi­dowed around 1929, and, hav­ing lost her wealth, moved to Bur­bank, Cal­i­for­nia to live with her sis­ter.

This hymn goes out by special request to Leon. Remember Heb 13:5, where God says “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee”.

Lyrics and Music: 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 here 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,
Blessèd 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!
