Journey to the End of Self

When I came to Jesus
For the cleansing of my sin, (John 3:3)
My heart was set at peace
As the Saviour came within. (2 Cor. 5:17)

Looking to His promise
Of a life of victory, (2 Cor.2:14)
My faith was sadly taxed,
As I struggled to be free. (Rom. 7:24,25)

The burdens that I bore
Were heavier day by day;
It seemed God didn’t care (Ps. 142:4)
As I labored in the way.

I searched for other means
For relief from trials sore;
No comfort could I find
And I yielded to Him more. (Rom. 12:1)

My Lord had heard my cry (Ps. 142)
And began to guide my way; (Ps. 37:5)
Tho’ comfort was not giv’n
He refused to let me stray.

My strength was well nigh gone,
And continued to decrease;
Until there was no more
And He gave to me His peace. (John 14:27)

My heart was filled with peace
That passeth understanding; (Phil.4:6,7)
I knelt in heartfelt awe
My soul was not demanding.

Tho’ pain had been my lot, (Phil. 1:29,30)
In His suff’ring I was blest; (Phil. 3:10)
Crucified with Christ, (Gal. 2:20)
I have found in Him my rest. (Matt.11:28,29)
