Immortal Honors

by William Gadsby, 1838
(#667 in A Selection of Hymns for Public Worship)

Gadsby Hymnal


1.   Immortal honors rest on Jesus' head
      My God, my portion and my living Bread
      In Him I live, upon Him cast my care
      He saves from death, destruction and despair

2.   He is my refuge in each deep distress
      The Lord, my Strength and Glorious Righteousness
      Through floods and flames He leads me safely on
      And daily makes His sovereign goodness known

3.   My every need He richly will supply
      Nor will His mercy ever let me die
      In Him there dwells a treasure all divine
      And matchless grace has made that treasure mine

4.   O that my soul could love and praise Him more
      His beauties trace, His majesty adore
      Live near His heart, upon His bosom lean
      Obey His voice and all His will esteem
